Erin Go WAAAHHHHH!!!!!
I have a mission!
I’ve heard the call!!
I finally know my purpose, y’all!!!
I MUST SAVE IRELAND!!!!
Against the backdrop of deep recession and rampant unemployment, alcohol consumption all over the Emerald Isle has crashed harder than Amy Winehouse after a 4-month Blaaaaaaaaaaake binge!
Ireland’s per capital alcohol consumption fell by 9.6 percent in 2009 and is now 21 percent below an all-time peak in 2001 when Ireland’s economy was booming.
TWENTY ONE PERCENT DOWNTURNAGE!!!!
“It was the worst year for our industry in living memory,” Kieran Tobin, chairman of the Drinks Industry Group of Ireland (DIGI), told a news conference in a central Dublin pub.
WORSTEST MOST AWFULEST YEAR IN LIVING MEMORY!!!!
And, if it wasn’t bad enough already – the decline in dedicated drinking was made even worse by the combination of a strong euro and comparatively low excise duty on spirits in Northern Ireland, because that shit flat out drove folks over the edge border to buy their drinks elsewhere, which cost the Irish government an estimated 100 million euros ($135.1 million) a year in lost revenue.
And all that statistical stuff translates to pubs closing at the rate of around one a day (YIKES) and 15,000 jobs lost across the region over the last 18 months.
PUBS CLOSING = DEFCON FIVE! DEFCON FIIIIIIIIVE!!!!!
This is serious shit and I won’t have it!
Hang on girl! Help is coming!!
Cookie and her hollow leg are on the way!!!!!
