    Last year at this time my daughter and I were in Killarney for the Saint Patrick's Day Parade on her break from USNA. It was a once in a lifetime occasion. The Parade was great and really just a local Parade with all the local people farmers and goups from the surrounding area but the Guiness was geat there and in Dublin. Irish Navy has about 1,200 total and they may get a new ship and need an Admiral for all ten. :thumb: "Faugh an Bealach" "Erin Go Braugh"

    The only time I've had Guinness outside of Ireland was when I first tried it from one of their bottles.

    Guinness is an aquired taste. I prefer Smithwicks, myself. :thumb:

    Bottled Guiness is the worst thing ever made. Real Amstel is great. Not the garbage you get in the US but the real Amstel.:thumb:
