The balladeer used to lament the anguish of "the pub with no beer," but vintners today have other, very first world problems.

Porter flows plentifully through the pipes and the Chardonnay may chill nicely in the fridge, but it's the broadband - or the lack thereof - that's your only man, if you're trying to run a bar in rural Ireland.
