AND FINALLY: Only the Irish

You can buy an air ticket out of Dublin for as little as €9.99

That does not mean you have to fly.

With Ireland on lockdown where can you drink socially?

In Departures of course.

The bars at Dublin Airport have been kept busy.

Customers miss their plane.

It’s then drinking time until they are chucked out.

Think of the €9.99 as an entrance fee.

You need a passport for this one!

..."Typical'Ye Olde' welcoming Irish bars are situated all over the globe in many major cities and towns..."It's true don't you know,for sure, so it is"....Hic! Hic! Oh be Jeezus...I'm sacked again!!...But you can't beat the true home Irish hospitality of a 'Poly Chrome Melamine covered bar for a gas induced pint of Guinness at the good old hostelry of the 'Departure Gate Inn' with the smiling company of a friendly armed Garda or your new American Mucker out of the Visa '51st & Green' room.... Ah!! The true traditional, beautiful and welcoming Eireann! ....for sure! "....
