Yeah but the only problem was I was going out with "My First Girlfriend" at the time too.. I only ever "Did the Dirt" or "Snogging someone else" twice in my life and that was the first time... If I only knew then what I know now!!!... I have just remember that girls name and she lived in Marino.... I am not mentioning any names though

I had a HORRIBLE experience in the compound one night. I was going a with a girl and it wasn't going well,not working out and I didn't really want to go any longer but didn't know how to 'break it off' (God-isn't that a real teenage expression?) And just as I was rehearsng the words in my head she said 'wait-before you say anything,here's your birthday present' and gave me a watch! Gobsmacked,I took it and thanked her,and then (you know what's coming next) she said 'what were you going to say?' and I then broke it off!

Terrible.

Who'd be a teenager.

Lets face it Floyd, you would have been wasting your time asking anyone to go out to the Compound, you looked so ,well...sexy and all!!
I got more women out there than I had hot Dinners!! and the long Reefer jackets we wore back then hid a lot when you were reaching for the Apples!!!!Got myself an orchard load of those!!!All the ugly people must have been inside and never heard of it because nobody asked them to go out there....truth hurts!!!

Sure Brendan our compound was the whole football pitch at Belgrove when they used to open the doors at the back of the stage because the women got so hot    NOT.   Ya could always try to catch one when they were running for the jax at the start of the slow set's. If you were quick that is.

The only place for a snog then was in the middle of the floor at the back. Foreign territory for me I might add as I didn't know a sinner that end. But a snog was a snog he he he

I remember a friend of ours from Clontarf (french fella living in Ireland) telling me one night (think it was one of them Summer reunions on the Wednesday) that this other French girl in the "compound" was (and I quote) "mad about hippies" and wanted me to go out to her.  I cant remember if I thought it was a wind-up by him/her or I was just too shy but I didnt head out.  Heading home at 1am, I saw herself and this other long haired chap together and thinking to myself "you complete wally"...... Unhappy

We should consider ourselves lucky that pepper spray wasn't invented yet.

These days Pogue you would probably get a couple of hundred volts in the ass from one of those zappers. Our Teresa would have about 1000 volts in her one then when you are down she would send for all her brothers. Jases wept.......

In the old Grove they wouldn't let you go outside and come back in again. Once you were inside you had to keep quiet and listen to the music. You were only allowed talk when the French and Spanish arrived and if they wanted to rob your girlfriend you had to let them.
