Dec 30: TODAY IN IRISH HISTORY (published by IrishmanSpeaks)
1759: Arthur Guinness signs a 9,000 year lease for St. James Gate brewery to allow him to brew that famous black magical brew that has now become world famous. The acclaimed For the Love of Being Irish, an A-Z of Ireland where not surprisingly “G” is for “Guinness” pays deferential tribute to what many affectionately know as Black Magic.
Guinness claim the perfect pint should take 119.5 seconds to pour. A long time, but worth the wait as Guinness aficionados will gladly tell you as you will see from this clip.
THE GUINNESS BRAND EXPERIENCE
1961: Conservative commentator and Fox News stalwart Sean Hannity enter the world. Hannity’s grand parents emigrated from Ireland. The two major conservative talking heads on the “Fair and balanced” network (Hannity and Bill O’Reilly) are of Irish extraction.
2006: Saddam Hussein executed. First generation Irish American Colonel James Hickey led the party which captured the former leader of Iraq.
