Thank God for people who speak too loudly in public, for they are a source of endless joy. And a great place to find these folk is on the Luas.
Oh yes, my friends, as you glide across the city on our beloved tram system, you're ideally positioned to eavesdrop on conversations from your fellow passengers.
Dubliners instinctively know that when they hear a particularly juicy snippet it must be shared with the good people of Twitter. It's a public service really, perhaps as valuable as the Luas itself. That's how we came by these gems.
