The pure drop

• The garda crackdown on "poor quality" poitin in Connemara for the first time in 30 years, could be because the "quality controller" was on his/her first holiday in 30 years.

Lucky the gardai were on hand as testers before he/she found out or it would be another 30 years before they would be able to go on holiday again.
