To the latest Irish novelist* who has just made huge and stupid generalisations about the "grim" northside of Dublin: fuck off. Also, buy a freaking map, or at least just, like, cross the Liffey once in a while because last time I looked, O'Connell Street was not surrounded by residential redbrick terraces, nor was it filled with prostitutes.

*I have to review her book, despite giving her second novel one of the nastiest reviews of my career back in my Tribune days

Oh, but there are no trees on the northside! They don't grow because of all the grim! And the sun never shines on Parnell St! And just when you think it's safe, a junkie prostitute crawls out of the sewer and STEALS YOUR BABY and EATS IT. And other fine tales....

Sure, everyone knows that Northsiders eat their young. It's only to be expected.
