Brigie Whiskey Jars, Guinness Pails - Irish Idioms? (79* d) RE: Whiskey Jars, Guinness Pails - Irish Idioms? 25 Aug 01


yez have it all wrong!!!!!!THE SNUG!!!!My goodness, the snug is sacred ground, well in Dublin it is. Yes it is for the people who want to go for a quiet pint with one or two friends and not be discovered. But it is very much the mans corner. Dare a female put her toe over the hatch, woe on her!!!! In Dublin most of the old traditional pubs didn't serve women at all until the late 70's or early 80's."We" fought long and hard for out right to go for a pint. There are still the few ( despite new legislation ) who don't allow women, but they have consequentially lost quite a few men too. But in places like the LONG HALL, THE PALACE, and a couple of others the snug is a hard held onto corner for the oul'fellas!!! There you go! Brigie
