Reading that just about brought tears of happiness to my eyes! Life just keeps getting better and better. I do believe that I will have to celebrate the occasion with a nice pint!

Here are some interesting facts:

The United States' first GUINNESS® Fleadh took place at Randall's Island, NY in 1997.

Around 10 million glasses of GUINNESS® are drunk around the world every day.
On average one Irish pub a day opens around the world.

Robert Louis Stevenson took GUINNESS® with him to the Samoan Islands while he wrote "Treasure Island"

Beer is an ancient beverage that has been consumed as part of a balanced diet for centuries — it contains the goodness of sprouted grain extracted into a rich liquid and fermented to produce a nutritional "liquid cereal" beverage.

A pint of GUINNESS® cost about 1pence in 1900.

"Go raibh maith agat" : thank you :-D
