What you need to know for St. Patties Day

The Starry Plough banner was originally used by the Irish Citizen Army. The leader, James Connolly, said the significance of the banner was that a free Ireland would control its own destiny from the plough to the stars.

This was flown by the Irish Citizen Army during the 1916 Easter Rising.

The flag depicts the constellation of Ursa Major, known as The Plough in Ireland and Britain, or in the US, the Big Dipper. Ursa Major (Latin: "Great Bear", originating from Greek "Μεγάλη Άρκτος") is one of the most prominent features of the night sky over Ireland throughout the year.

  • 1 glass Stout (Guinness)
  • 1 oz. Whiskey, straight grain

Glass to Use

Mixing Instructions

Combine Irish cream and whiskey in a shot glass. Drop shot into a glass of Guinness and drink quickly.
