Lisburn Exiles Forum

(Site is no longer operational pending a major long overdue overhaul of the entire website. Thank you for your patience. Site should still be visible and searchable for old posts.)

The Lisburn Exiles Forum is dedicated to the memory of James Goddard Collins (The Boss) who single-handedly built LISBURN.COM (with a lot of help from many contributors) from 1996 to 29th November 2012. This website was his passion and helping people with a common interest in the City of Lisburn around the world is his lasting legacy.

Hi everybody,
just a line in case anyone misses me next week, I,m off tomorrow to a village near Bayreuth for a week to coordinate a seminar for union delegates there. The hotel is first class, a member of the Romantic Group, owned by the famous TV Chef Herrmann( his mother made a parachute jump in tandem on her 80th birthday ) but I,m on a strict, self imposed diat with absolutly no alcohol until Xmas. An afternoon visit to the Wagner Opera House is also on the programm, I,ve been there once to see Sigfried, but it was too heavy for us both, we left at the interval and drove back to Munich and arrived in time for a beer at my local Biergarten. What do the Norn Ironers say? " You can take the man out of the bog but you cannot take the bog out of the man!"
