Thanks for the poll flame on.

Carrying on from the origins thread. IMO it is easier to live your life the way you want to as a gay man in the city. Where I came from, Portlaoise, might have been a pretty polarised example because we had very little outside influence from tourism but I could say the same for most midlands towns.

Personally never found a difference. However if you want a gay nightlife then obviously city is best.

Easier for what exactly? Nightlife? Safety? Expenses? Buying a house? Anonymous sex? I rarely go to gay bars now so there is no real difference from living in the city to the country bar it's nearly twice as cheap. And if I really want to go out in the city, it's 40 minutes away.

As for locals and their attitude, I've never had a problem.

Id imagine if you are a young person/ or someone exploring your sexuality then the city would be easier.

Probably cos you're such a nice, personable chap.

Well cork is very different from most of the counties in Ireland... there have been artsy or eccentric americans and brits living there for years.

That many? Michael Jackson never lived in Cork and Angela Landsbury just holidays in Cork though I've seen her pottering about Ballycotton and she was born in London thus not technically Irish.

All living there or have it listed as their primary residence for tax purposes.Every film, tv show, stage production that Angela and her ilk do, the pay checks are sent to the Irish address,
They are registered under the old tax free artists act. Same as with all the directors and producers who own houses there.
They have an one time writing credit that qualified them for the tax exemption and all pay is filtered through Ireland ever since.
Same as all the big Companies that fiddle their US taxes by having headquarters in Ireland.

She is an irish citizen; in January of this year the govt had to give her permission to receive here Dameship from Queen Elizabeth. Why do you have to disagree with everything I say... buttercups above just said the same thing, why don't you start your silly feud with her?
