Why do u think they hardly sell it in the pubs in the Republic ? But mostly Clontarf Whiskey ?
Actually Bushmills is widely available is most pubs in the Republic. It might not be the default whiskey (as in you might have to ask for it by name) but believe me it has nothing to do about it being a 'Protestant whiskey'. I wasn't aware that whiskey could have religion or to be honest was I ever aware that Bushmills Irish Whiskey could be considered Protestant.

By the way what is Clontarf Whiskey? Never heard of it.

've been living on and off in Ireland for the last 14 years.

By the way, that s what u see outside the distillery :

thats how u differenciate Protestant (pro-British) to Catholic (pro-ROI) areas in the North

Re: St Patricks Day! IRISH CHEESE FONDUE NIGHT...

Marvin, I really don't want to get dragged into a debate with you on this but Bushmills Irish Whiskey is neither Protestant or Catholic in the same way Coop Bio Milch is neither Jewish or Calvinist.

I know Bushmills town is in a Unionist area, but the company trades very heavily on the fact that it is an Irish whiskey dilltilled in 'Ireland's oldest distillery'.

People from many religions and no religion work there. The whiskey is drank all over the island of Ireland (just like Guinness) and carries no political conectations.

Marvin it's 2011, the vast majority of people in Ireland have moved on from the lazy and devise monikers of 'Catholic' or 'Protestant'. The divisions between the Republic and the North grow ever more irrelevant with every passing day as the island embraces more mature, more normal relations with its neighbors. I suggest you get with this movement.

---------------------------------------------------------

To the Penny Farthing - best of luck with St Patricks Day's celebration! I love the idea of fusing Swiss culture (fondue) with Irish cheese. Hope it is a fun night.

Being Irish I am a keen celebrant of St Patricks day. Ktoneill even though I love my homeland cheese more so than the swiss cheese I'm just not sure if an Irish cheese Fondu is a good move! I mean I've never tried it but I think the cheddar could be a bit heavy or something not sure on this!

However I think I may be enticed to join ye from Basel. How much will the Fondu cost?
Do you normally have many people in on St Patricks day?

Will there be no Paddy's day celebration in Basel? Are there any Irish places other than Paddy Reilly's?

McGuinness's near Elizabethankirche is another Irish pub.

I'm sure there will be plenty of celebrations in Basel but Aarrau is only 30 mins from Basel with a direct train and I can highly recommend the Penny as a great place to have a fun night out. Maybe you can round up a few Basel folk to go on the train together?
