More made up than homemade.

Another backfiring joke maybe : (

Sláinte!!!

The Americans might find it curious that in Ireland on St Pat's day, it is not tradition to wear green (and be pinched for the offence of not wearing it), that is American made.

(Jesus it's all BS anyway - I mean , as I type, I'm drinking American beer and will be going out of my way to avoid all festivities later today)

Yes it is all BS but feck it, it's enjoyable :)

That is the legacy of Ollie Morgan AKA The Irish Ambassador.

I didn't know the full story, M told me years ago but left out some bits and added udders ;)

What kind? My favourite US beer was always Coors on tap, its really difficult to find in Europe.

Irish bar (not Irish owned though) in Wroclaw, just had a quick look through the ratings and i totally dont agree with the negatives, this is and always has been my favourite watering hole in Wroclaw.

if your English you may be charged more for drinks as i was....and also was given very wrong change too on two seperate occasions

shut up foo

terrible music while the football is on.

While the football is on!! the music is always terrible, thats a defo negative, its always Irish dance music, great for the theme terrible for everything else. I had them playing my music for a while. I guess i like it so much because it feels like a proper pub.

All the boys that have been around for a while in Warsaw, only have good things to say about the "Morgans" except for the ones that "T" scared the sh1t out of. lol

If M opened a place in Warsaw on the lines of the Mbassy, it would be a massive hit and he knows it, but he likes his comfortable slipper in Krakow.

I guess i like it so much because it feels like a proper pub.

Those ones are always the best WB, it is always nice to have a place to slip back to.

Got to love this write up,

Forget a well-oiled democratic political system, smooth-running bureaucracy, reliable emergency services, extensive transport links and a sound market economy. A city needs only two things to achieve modern civilization: a McDonalds and an Irish Pub. Have you ever been to a city without them? We haven't and we've been all the way to Novisibirsk in Siberia - a case of one pint of Guinness coming right up!

I liked this one:

(especially if they don't just have the boring standard brands like Warka) and the people are friendlier.

Hey acehole its Zywiec not Warka, everything else kinda goes out the window after that.

Also 'friendly people' whats that in Poland?

Excellent. There's a St Patrick's Day bash at the Irish Pub here - but they suggested I leave dog at home so we're not going.

A drinkie without the hound is an evening wasted.

Thank you Dolno!

There's a St Patrick's Day bash at the Irish Pub

Yes but I wouldn't advise you to go in any case as you don't like Irish music. I had a friend whose mother (Irish) detested traditional music especially the jigs and the reels 'God Almighty, it's pure torture listening to them sawin' away on those old fiddles'........

" listening to them sawin' away" I love it, usually involves a good deal of drinking and the locals having a good crack at at my ex pence, but for every joke they usually buy me a beer.

Yes, thanks! I had overlooked that (otherwise obvious) consideration. I do know from good authority that said Gdynia pub is absolutely packed on this one night of the year as the plastics come out of the woodwork:)

Happy St Patricks Day to all the Irish, including Atch, and to my Irish grandmother Eilean Buckley. Apparently she was teetotal:) :)

contrary to the racist stereotypes that people like to engage in, that is quite normal in Ireland.

Well I am going to the Knights of Columbus for their corn beef and cabbage dinner to celebrate.
All the money raised goes to the primary Catholic school here.
And the best part is they make twice as much food that is needed so you can donate for a to go box.
They only serve beer but if you go back in the kitchen to volunteer to wash pots and pans there is always a bottle of something good to take a couple of hefty nips off.

This year they even have free shuttles (donation) for rides home to your door step.
A special Happy St. Patty to my former Irish sparring partner Atch today.

Happy St Patricks Day to all the Irish...and to my Irish grandmother

Yes of course. And only earlier today....

Tiresome ignoramuses:)

The only thing truly tiresome is the endless, ignorant, two-faced mental gymnastics on display here from both Zionists and ex-pat chauvinists sneering at Poles who display any love for Poland.

As there is Celtic influence in parts of Poland, Krakow, for example, every pub in that city should hang a sign "NIECH ZYJE IRLANDIA!!"

that is quite normal in Ireland.

Indeed it is. There was a society called The Pioneers whose members took a life-long pledge not to consume alcohol. I don't know if they're still on the go.

And only earlier today....

Well I'm pretty sure you won't be seeing far right activists at the Paddy's Day parades around Ireland today :))

Thank you very much :)) No parades this year in Ireland because of Coronavirus but people round the country are organizing small family events and some people will have be having neighbourhood sing-songs with everybody joining in from their gardens :) Plans are to share these things via the usual social media channels.
