A pleasurable evening last night looking at all the horses during 'evening stables'.. Happy horses who all look so well and happy staff who were laughing (at my shoes) and chatting about their coming night out..

Guiness is in the top 10 Irish inventions that changed the world..

Well maybe this isn't so surprising but its popularity and longevity have made it Ireland's most successful and recognizable export. 

Undoubtedly the most famous Irish export throughout the world, drunk around the globe and loved by millions: It's Guinness. 

Arthur Guinness began brewing Guinness in Leixlip, County Kildare, before transferring to St. Jame’s Gate Brewery. In 1759, he signed a 9,000-year lease at £45 per year. That’s how confident he was in his product. 

Now, 251 years on, the best-selling alcoholic drink of all time boasts of sales exceeding $2.6 billion. To Arthur, Sláinte!

On that happy note have a great Bank Holiday weekend. .. We will be back here as normal on Monday..
