A Massive Northside V Southside Snowball Fight Has Been Arranged For Tomorrow

James Fenton

As most Dubliners are panic buying loaves of bread and stocking up on de-icer, one genius has come up with a unique way for people to pass the time during the Big Snow of 2018. 

A Facebook event has been set up, presumably by a Northsider, called ‘Massive Snowball Fight With South Dublin’. It includes details of a head-to-head between both sides of the Liffey on O’Connell Bridge on Wednesday at 3pm. 

The event reads:

‘North v South in a vicious snowball fight to the death! Your chance to crack some 90 mile per hour curve balls off of Southsiders foreheads!! Who’s in? ????????????

Please note that this is an unofficial event however there may be rogue snowballers loitering the streets and we may put snowball snipers in place on the day to absolutely lash any southsider out of it that tries to cross O’Connells Bridge so cross at your own peril…you have been warned!????????’

Now, we don’t reckon for one minute that anyone is condoning actually ‘cracking a curve ball off a Southsider’s forehead’ but we’re sure there’ll be plenty of fun to be had once Storm Emma arrives, particularly if we get a few snow days off work and college. 

Nearly 2,500 people have already clicked ‘attending’ on the event at the time of writing. Which side will you be on?
