A report carried out by Queens University has revealed that 97% of Newry women who share a household with men have to squat in order to use the toilet.
The report findings suggest that when it comes to using the toilet Newry men have the worse aim on the island of Ireland, missing the target on most occasions and leaving their urine on the seat for the women to clean or deal with.
We spoke with one woman who shares a house with her husband and 3 grown up sons, she told Newry Spud:
“My husband has never been quite able to piss in the toilet but now he’s got older he pisses all over the ceiling but my 3 grown up sons, they are worse, they all work full-time and are functioning alcoholics, their aim is abysmal. So when I have to piddle I end up squatting over the bog. Fucking pigs they are.”
