Arthur Guinness Day 2011
Posted on: September 22nd, 2011 by steveh
Today is the third annual Arthur’s Day. In memory of Arthur Guinness, the man who brought Guinness to the world. The international celebration will see patron drinkers of Guinness raising glasses to Arthur, or “Gloine a ardú chuig Arthur Guinness!” today at 17:59, to commemorate the year (1759) when the Guinness brewery first opened. Arthur’s day is celebrated with music concerts around the world, but you don’t have to go to one of these just to spread the word, 17:59 is on the way home from work time for most of us, so stop in your local pub, order a pint, but make it a Guinness.
