There is always someone who knows

Last week I posted this picture of an old bottle from a Listowel Pharmacy. The ingredients looked pretty lethal to this untrained eye.

Liam Grimes solved the mystery for me. This is a Brompton Cocktail. It was given to relieve the pain of terminally ill patients. It got its name from the fancy London hospital where it was first dispensed.

One for the Diaspora

If you like an evening of music with a great Irish tenor, then you should try to get to hear this young man who is fast making a name for himself. You can see all the dates of his 2019 U.S tour on his website. He could be coming to a church or other venue near you. You’ll enjoy him.
