Greetings on St Patrick’s Day – March 17th 2012
With the help of Sister Lucie and Jack, students of Hulme Hall celebrated St Patrick a couple of days early this week with Evening Prayer in the Chapel, some food and the obligatory pint of Guinness.
Much was discussed – from holidays in Ireland, the famous ‘Guinness is Good for You’ slogan and the upcoming Hulme Hall Chapel trip to a Romanian Children’s village.
1. Arthur Guinness set up his first brewery in Leixlip, Co Kildare, in 1756 after he was left a £100 inheritance by his godfather, Archbishop Arthur Price.
2. The country that drinks the most Guinness after Ireland is…Nigeria
3. Up until 1939 if a brewer at the Protestant owned Guinness Brewery wished to marry a Catholic his resignation was required!
