Re: Personal breathalyzer Kits

A mate put a Breathalyser in his country pub thinking it was helping out the customers. It had the opposite affect and turned into a competition to see how many folks could have and still be under the limit. The record was 5 pints before he took it out.

Re: Lions tomorrow Cork city venues

The Rob Roy and The Thomond are both rugby pubs and probably open.
Reardons and the Woolshed do all sports and will probably be open.
Best bet is to give them a ring and ask if they are open.
Three definitely do food. Not sure about the Rob Roy.
