And there was me showing it to everybody. Just goes to show you cannot believe eveything to see.

I was looking at a cloud formation the other day and they tried to convince me it was Ireland.

As the saying goes you cannot fool me I'm stupid

I think you are correct Bugrock I am googling Eden Villas and it looks almost the same but the ESB pole is in a different place.

At first I thought it was O'Donnell Gardens, but I don't remember the Pole.

I should know the 101 - I had the shite bet out of me many a time in a garden there. God bless you Tiddler! That's when I lived in Coldwell Street.

Funny how Irish Glass Bottles closed down shortly after this and the site was worth millions.I think we were a lot greener back then, with milk bottles and electric floats.
But been green wasnt as profitable then.I dont think we even knew we were green in those days.

This mad obscure film is about a man who makes a living out of sell manure he gathers from Dublin horses-mainly from the ones who work for Premier Dairies.

Some excellent shots of Dublin in the flim.

Also can anybody tell me where the Premier Dairies Depot is that is featured at 4.55 onwards in the film?

Welcome to the site Quackser. I'm almost out of bandwidth so I can't watch it for a day or two but sounds good. :D
