When I hear Irish guitar I tend to think of Rory Gallagher's Strat, maybe his Tele, Martin, or National. Sometimes it makes me think of Lowden Guitars. Not to say the G&L isn't very cool.

Funny. Yeah, maybe.

Co-incidentally, and perhaps a bit ironically, Guinness was the last drink I had before quitting, or more like the last several drinks I had before quitting. Not even my favourite drink.
