Ross Kemp on Gangs: Limerick Style

Ha ha ha

Article in Sunday Indo from January 27th. An interview with Ross Kemp.(that bald guy from eastenders who trys to keep up his hard man image by interviewing gangs 'round the globe)

Indo interviewer asks an hilarious question at the end,

"The image of him[Kemp] as a hard man won't have been altered much by his other successful venture, Ross Kemp On Gangs. It's a BAFTA Award-winning series in which Ross travels around the world and interviews violent gang members in different countries. He denies that the series, which is now the subject of a brilliant new book, was setting out to "prove any point" or that he was "some sort of journalist" but, nevertheless, the programmes did graphically show the extent of macho subculture that exists in many societies.

He tells me that the gangs in Poland were probably the worst, although he had a close call in Brazil as well. I ask him if he has any plans to come to Limerick. "Not as yet." He laughs. "Perhaps we'll have to look into it."

I always wished Dog 'The Bounty Hunter' would pay Limerick a visit.Wouldnt that be funny..
