Morning In Ireland

This was a common sight around Ireland — the rows of empty kegs awaiting pickup outside a pub.

Kilkenny, Ireland

This was one of many such assemblages spotted during a morning walk around Kilkenny on a Monday morning. We all had a laugh as we had been listening to a street party that lasted until 2AM outside our hotel. Most of the pubs in Ireland close around 11:00PM, but they don't let that stand in the way of a good time, the streets stay "open" much later. We also learned that many businesses have late opening hours on Monday. Just one more thing to love about the Irish!


  1. They know how to milk a weekend for all it's worth.

    1. Indeed, MSgt. I think we should adapt more Irish ethic in this country.
