Trying hard to be impartial, there is a slight tilt towards wanting to know what the Irish believe to be their secret to curing a hangover.

People have written enitre songs and books on the subject of Irish drinking and 'tis a great volume of opinion on the matter dealing with the day after. Just to be clear, we don't endorse the Irish Coffee or a nip of the Hair of the Irish Setter That Bit Ya as an option.
