What's it all about? Is it  a day to pay homage to the father of our national beverage (although we drink his stout every other day of the week) or a clever marketing ploy by diageo, an international concern which has little or nothing to do with Ireland?

Christy Moore has written a satirical ditty about the event.

BTW how Irish is Guinness? The water is Irish, everything else is imported.

Its an unusual day to have it. I mean if you are working you are unlikely to go out mid week but apparently its designed to pick up low pub sales. Pubs are busy at the weekend and do not need the extra business then. Arthur's Day is also supposed to showcase the best of Irish music yet many of the group are apparently non irish.
