The locals of Dublin neighbourhood Phibsborough have made their voices heard with regards to the potential opening of an adult store in the area, named ‘Ride Me Sideways’.
According to The Irish Sun, the store’s owners are reportedly checking out a building located on Berkeley Street, beside two crisis pregnancy clinics and a Catholic church. It’s also down the road from a primary school.
The company’s name derives from that famous scene from ‘Father Ted’, where Mrs Doyle discusses the contents of a gritty novel.
The parents of the area are said to be livid.
A Phibsborough mother told the Irish Sun:
“I have two young children that go to a local national school who will have to walk by what I can only call filth every day. It’s right beside a church. This can not happen on our street. The people need to know what is happening and put a stop to this.”
However, nothing has yet been confirmed.
Ride Me Sideways co-owner John Newman, who recently purchased the website said ”we are looking at a few places in Dublin, that is all” and “nothing is set in stone”.
