Almost Sligo

In 2003 I had an informal lunchtime chat with a Googler who was heading off to Ireland along with some others on a quick tour of the country hosted by some Irish govt development people. He was curious as to why they wanted him to visit places called "Sligo" and "Galway" when he'd only ever heard of Dublin. I explained to him there was a policy of trying to sucker companies into moving out of Dublin and into the arse-end of nowhere in the name of "decentralisation". I had to use equivalencies such as "Ozarks" and "Cajuns" so he could understand what kind of deal they were trying to set up with Google. Needless to say, Dublin won out.
