SENIOR CITIZEN BORSTAL CAMBRIDGE COURT
by louis walsh
It is just gone 1:00 am and I’m sitting in the common room in Cambridge Court. I have a hundred things to write about but I’ve said them all before…..And so here I am staring at a blank page on my laptop with nothing to say. As it says in the good book , “There is nothing new under the sun”. And there is certainly nothing new in Cambridge Court.
Here is a short video clip of the common room in Cambridge Court. As you can see it is actually a snooker/bingo hall and it attracts the kind of people you expect to find hanging around a snooker hall. It looks like a recreation room in a borstal but as the tenants have been bullied out of using the place I suppose it doesn’t really matter. The music playing in the background is the Shadows , “The Frightened City” which is quite appropriate……..I brought the record player into the common room a few months ago and set it up in a nice spot with some LP records but was told I had to move it as it was in the way of the bingo crowd ( this bingo crowd don’t actually live in Cambridge Court). These thugs run Cambridge Court under the protection (and encouragement) of Dublin City Council.
