Thread Name: The Mero (explanation wanted)
Subject: RE: The Mero (explaination wanted)

This song has nothing to do with the troubles in the North.
It is an amusing ditty which sketches some everyday occurrences in Dublin over a period.
I recommend you go to the link listed further up this thread.
The MERO was the slang name for a particular cinema, I have no idea which, but the song is suggesting nothing more sinister than a visit to a cinema !
