GUY'S WORLD: FOR GUINNESS SAKE Any Irish bar tender worth his salt has at least a bare minimum of 90-120 seconds of blarney up his sleeve.

SATURDAY 10 MARCH Guinness Irish Music Festival A “Fleadh” in Aotea Square 12pm – 5pm – FREE A concert showcasing New Zealand’s Irish music and dance talent. Food, beverages and refreshments

SAVE THE PINT The great British pint could become a thing of the past as the nation is slowly dragged towards compulsory use of metric measures, a court was told yesterday (16/01/01)."
