Arthur's Day 2010


Today is Arthur's Day and we are ensconced in that famous Wicklow Town watering hole, The Leitrim Lounge, in order to raise a glass in his honour!

And just to quote the official word: "Established in 2009 during Guinness's 250-year anniversary, Arthur's Day is a series of events and celebrations taking place around the world to celebrate the life and legacy of Arthur Guinness and the much-loved Guinness® beer which Arthur brought to the world."









So that's the only excuse we need! Today, the worldwide celebrations commence at the appropriate hour, 17:59, i.e. right in the middle of cocktail hour, and looking around me in The Leitrim Lounge, everyone is treating the event very seriously indeed!  Now, for the cynical mind out there, it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the price of a pint of Guinness has been reduced, for the occasion, down to €2.50 - that is serious!
