The event took place at Baily's Corner bar in Tralee thanks to publican Garry O'Donnell who had invited Ardfert man and renowned whiskey connoisseur Michael Lawlor to town to host a tasting session for a group of around 30 invited guests.

Mr Lawlor, who runs the famous Celtic Whiskey shop in Dublin, brought a selection of rare whiskey for guests to sample and as well as talking the guests through the unique qualities of each, he delivered a fascinating lecture on whiskey distilling techniques and the rich history of the drink.
