That's from yesterday evening's Evening Herald. It makes me think that Whoopsadaisy may have a point.
"I’ve had a crap day - let’s go to the pub, sure it’ll cheer you up to get pissed.Ireland's economy has gone to hell, the banks are in a mess, medical cards for old age pensioners are affected, unemployment is up, taxes are up but sure as the Herald says, the pint is safe. Wahey.
I’ve just lost my job - let’s go to the pub, we’ll commiserate with you.
I’ve just had a baby - let’s go to the pub, to wet the baby’s head.
I feel a bit ill, too much to drink last night - let’s go to the pub, another pint will sort you out."
It really makes me wonder about the Herald's journalistic policy and the country's priorities.
What do you think? Is that important enough to warrant the front page of a national newspaper? Is it a sign that we, as a nation, are far too dependent on drink?
