A local man who started drinking last Friday evening and stopped some time last night says he can’t believe how quick the bank holiday weekend went. Brian Duggan spends most weekends in the pub and is what Irish people would call ‘fond of the drink’ but all other nationalities would call a raving alcoholic.
Brian left work at 5:30pm on Friday and was in such a good mood that he decided to pop into his local for a quick pint on the way home. He left the pub around midnight last night (Monday) and admits that most of what happened in between is a bit of a blur.
“Well I went clubbing after the pub on Saturday night. I do remember that. Or was that Sunday night? Could’ve been both nights I suppose. Or maybe that was the previous weekend. Anyway, my poor old Da used to say to me – if you wake up with a hangover, go for a cure – and I live by those words. No point in being sick all day. He never even got to see 50, poor man. Something to do with his liver apparently. I hope it’s not hereditary whatever it was.”
Brian said there’s one part of the bank holiday weekend that he definitely won’t forget in a hurry.
“There is one thing I certainly remember.” he said with a cheeky grin. “Lets just say I didn’t spend the night alone. Yep, got lucky with a lady. A full night of steamy passion is not something you forget no matter how much you had to drink. I just wish I got her number before she left or remembered her name or what she looked like or even where she’s from. Then again that could’ve been the cat. Wouldn’t be the first time if it was unfortunately.”
