OK, Shane, you're from Ireland.
I am, indeed, yeah.
Um, where are you from in Ireland?
I'm from a small town about 30 miles away from Dublin called Anfield,
where there is plenty of cows and farmers and those type of things.
It's a good place. Lots of green fields. No mountians. Very small town
you know. I'd say there is about maybe 2,000 people living there. (oh, wow)
but I actually live outside the town so I live, a sort of bungalow house
and it's sort of far away from the town so, that where I'm living, or that's
where I was living, I was living in Dublin though, the capital but I originally
from about, a sort of rural town you might say.

OK. What is the best thing about your town?
Uh, it's a very close knit community, so if you go into a bar or a pub,
everyone seems to know each other. You know so whether, you have young people
who interact with people who are 50 or 60 years of age, and there's like people
playing football and all that stuff, there is lots of interaction between people,
so everyone seems to know each other.
