    Ridiculous. Thats like the "boycott shops because of the euro ripoff" a few months ago. Its not going to happen.

    The words 'boycott', 'pub' and 'Ireland' just don't really fit in the same sentence do they?

    Call it National Offy Day instead. Would get more support. market it as "Remember those great student days of buying a naggin of vodka in the Offy cos it was cheaper than the pub. Relive it on Feb 28th. "

    Could have all these cool ones for the days of cider drinking in the park and everything.
