 Ah yeah, one of the great memories from the "old" Grove was a slow set with a lovely blond girl named Pat. Back in '72 it was.

The song was "Jean Genie" and all around were boppin but me and Pat were oblivious to that. We just swopped tongues !! for the whole song.

Way to go Pat, hope you're still rockin in the free world.

Biker Pat

There were never enough slow sets at the Grove, that was my only complaint. Otherwise rock on.

Hi Aungier,

I thought there were loads of slow sets. But I remember the girls use to run for cover when the fast set was about to end. You had to hurry sometimes to catch one. Otherwise they hung in groups and you had to fish one out. God, the innocence of it now.

There were never more thna 3 slow sets in the night and even then they were relatively short so if you missed one, you were lost.

Thank God for the slow sets! What if there were no
slow sets?! How would we have learned in the ways
of the opposite sex? I was shy back then (but then I
discovered Dutch Courage, or was that Autumn
Gold, what ever it was they sold it in cans and it
really helped the cause) I don't think I'd be half the
man I think I am today without the help of The
Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Judy Tzuke, Hazel O'Connor
and Co.!?

My first snog ever was during a slow set, god knows what song, with Steven Davidson from Kilbarrack. He had longish greasy hair and I thought he was gorgeous. No tongues!

I am ashamed to say that I was one of the girls that boldly would say No Thanks when a boy asked me to dance. How cruel! but they were usually Geeks that asked and never the boy you fancied.

 

Sorry to all those lads whose ego's got deflated.

I remember this one guy who would seek one of us out every week for a slow dance to Free Bird or Stair Way to Heaven and he would paste his gonads up against your crotch! He was the most disgusting person ever - we never had the heart to tell to go to hell - I often wondered what ever happened to him - the dirty git!  Probably a flasher in St. Anne's Park now...

 

LOL... I am cracking up here as now I know this guys name... he was from Howth.... name began with P..... ya feckin eejit ya....LOL

Interesting! There was always a weird and wonderful range of social interaction during the slow sets. (It was a human zoo I suppose). Some couples would be a Taliban-friendly distance apart. Others would look like host and creature in a scene from "Aliens". Given what allegedly goes on at teenage events nowdays it seems that some things never change.

Hi Ya Kay, Teresa here! Never in me life.  Us Manor House girls had manors alright.  Kay do you remember in 6th year they had those communication studies - there were four subjects and sex ed was one of them - I don't believe anyone ever attended any of the other classes but sex Ed.  LOL we would be jammed in there to learn it from no less a NUN....

I am lucky not to have any girls as they wouldn't be going To Manor House........

 

But I would have no problem sending them to the Grove

Do you remember all the nights down the park Knacker Drinking before the grove and the night that all the drink was taking of Timmy and he wasn't even drinking.

Or the night that Janette said we had enough and through all the drink away

I remember the night all the booze was taken but not Janette throwing all the booze away! Hell no, they were the practicing years I would have leveled her…  Ah those were the days, I am trying to picture us sitting down there now knacker drinking... instead of a nice cozy pub!!!  I am also trying to picture someone taking my drink away - like taking a bone away from a dog!!!!  I ate them..
