Iain: Hi Juncal. Can we call you Junkie?
Iain: So then what did you think about Ireland?
Juncal: I absolutely loved it…like really. People are just so friendly. For example when I was lost in the street, the people were always bringing me to the place!
Iain: Do you think Mexican people know much about Ireland?
Juncal: Most don’t know where it is for sure. All we know about Ireland are the Irish pubs. When I moved to Ireland, to be honest I didn't know that much about the country. I knew it was beside England, but cheaper than England…Sorry. But once I got there I realized how amazing the country was. There are so many cultural things that I learned about once I arrived. I guess we just don’t know much about the country here in Mexico.
Iain: And speaking of cultural things, what was your favourite nightclub in Ireland?
Juncal: Well it depends on which day of the week it is. Like Coppers is good fun, but sometimes the guys are just all over you and it can get a little annoying.
Iain: Really? I didn't know that.
Juncal: Yeah it’s like 90% guys. I also liked Dicey’s because of its cheap drinks and good fun. And sometimes I liked to splash out and go to Everleigh Gardens.
Iain: A posh girl I see. An would you recommend Ireland to people in Mexico now?
Juncal: Yes definitely. It’s all I have been doing! I have been telling them about how much it rocks and how much I love it. I only got back a month ago and I have been so depressed seeing all my Irish friends posting sunny pictures in Stephens Green
Juncal: Even though we have sun in Mexico it is not the same as you appreciate it more in Ireland.
Iain: And one last thing. Did you learn any Irish phrase, in English or Irish, during your time there?
Juncal: Just one: Ramhar. It means like fat or something.
Iain: That’s a strange one to know.
Juncal: Yeah I used to date a guy and his nickname was Ramhar
Iain: Big lad then?
Juncal: No he wasn't I swear. He was skinny, like really skinny, but that was his nickname.
Iain: Right on that note I think we can call it a day. Thanks very much for your time Junkie and we hope to see you back in Ireland sometime in the future.
Juncal: Me too. Sláinte.
Like Coppers is fun but sometimes the guys are just like all over you
