It can be done successfully elsewhere so don't expect to see it happen in Ireland any time soon.

Dunnes used to have one supplier that would provide milk in glass bottles a while back. I do not know if they still do.

Dublin. There is a guy that sells milk in bottles not pasteurised or homogenised at skerries Mills Market I think every other Saturday. You buy the glass bottle from him and bring back each time you get milk.

PS It was Blue Tits not crows that pecked through the bottle tops and drank the cream.
I certainly do, they were delivered in the 90s sure. I think it stopped when Irish Glass closed down which was early 2000s.
