In Tommy Makem’s ode to the small Monaghan town of Ballybay he tells the story of a young woman whose father brewed poitín for the locals.
“But when she took to the drink, well the devil wouldn’t fill her,” Makem sings.
Fine Gael TD Sean Conlan’s father didn’t brew moonshine, but he did own a local bar which was passed on to his son after his death.
