It's not every day that a business uses a Father Ted quote as its store name, but there might be a good reason why after residents in Phibsborough, in inner city Dublin, complained about a new 18+ shop to be erected (sorry) soon. "Ride Me Sideways", a Father Ted inspired adult store, is hoping to open on Berkeley Street, right next door to a pregnancy clinic and a Catholic Church.
A woman from the area 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".
