A new Government report into Northern Ireland drinking habits has provided a fascinating snapshot, which is challenging the traditional views of problem alcohol consumption.

The results show that more than half of people in Northern Ireland say they exceed the recommended daily alcohol limit – with one in six men admitting they do so at least three times a week.

It found 71% of men and 58% of women admitted they drink more than they should, according to official guidelines.

This report brought to you by The National Coalition Against White People (hidden message and agenda- white Irishmen are all drunks; it’s a white thang). Next report up - Rednecks 5 times as likely to Drink and Hunt...

My favorite Irish joke is the one about Pat O'Grady.

He worked at the local brewery for many years until one day, his wife gets a call from the foreman to report the sad news that Pat O'Grady fell into one of the fermenting vats and drowned.

Mrs. O'Grady is quite upset, but then remarks that at least he didn't suffer long.

"I'm not sure about that," says the foreman. "He climbed out of the vat three times to pee."

The recommended daily limit for men is 3 to 4 units – equivalent to a pint-and-a-half of beer.

Look, I'll let an "expert" tell me how fast to drive, what to eat, how often to exercise, but

LEAVE MY BEER ALONE!

No Way!
Bloody Lies!
Libel!

A new Government report into Northern Ireland drinking habits Ha!

"Government" = Nigerian Muslims hired as a result of "Positive Discrimination," the UK word for Affirmative Action, which has replaced politely somewhat inept British civil servants with pathologically inept and openly hostile (un) Worthy Oriental Gentlemen.

I told everyone here at FR that genetics prove that the Irish migrated from Germany. This is just more proof.

Irish jokes? My favorite starts (and ends) like this, ‘There was this Irishman who walked out of a bar...”.

If I lived in that HELL HOLE called England (or N. Ireland), I’d binge-drink too.

But given their Socialist medical system, I would NEVER admit to it.

Irish people
The Lebor Gabála Érenn, a medieval Christian pseudo-history of Ireland, traces the Irish to key Biblical figures. It says that the Irish people's earliest forebears came to Ireland via Scythia and Iberia.

Genetic research shows a strong similarity between the Y chromosome haplotypes of males from north-western Spain and Portugal and Irish men with Gaelic surnames.
