Hey I read the Belfast Telegraph,
first Fark post I've ever seen from my local paper - And I used to live in Lisburn where the brewery is, so next time I go home I get cheap beer (which is always a good thing)

Little tiny clarification

Belfast is NOT in Ireland!
Belfast is in Northern Ireland, which is still part of the UK. The duty passed was passed by the British parliament, not the Irish one.

actually Kevin, Belfast is in Ireland (unfortunately), the island of Ireland is divided into Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, as for all the comic genius's above (foilman, bradbrad and shamelessplug) way to go with original thought guys! drunk/irish - WOW, who would have ever thought to post something like that

Kevin: but i do see your point the story title is misleading when people say Ireland 99% of the time they are referring to the Republic of Ireland.
Most dumbasses (foilman, bradbrad and shamelessplug) dont realise they are two completely different states (and hopefully will remain that way)

Meanwhile, in the Republic of Ireland, the breweries have just put up the price of beer (thanks, Guinness) so most of the pubs have responded by adding their little bit on top making a whopping 10 cent increase in most places.

Just in time for Saint Patricks...

St. Guinness - AKA Mamon.

The best thing about being in the military: No tax at the PX means taxless, dirt cheap beer.
2002-03-11 09:17:11 AM  
yup hlx - like they didnt increase it already with the introduction of the euro?
biggest bastards of all are Dakota where a pint can cost you up to Euro4.50 after 12.30am

Kevinatilusa: thank you! I'm glad someone else realises the mistake in the headline.
2002-03-11 01:18:53 PM  
Beer tax? Bastards.
2002-03-11 05:04:27 PM
