The drink was named in honor of the premiere of the operetta, Rob Roy by composer Reginald De Koven and lyricist Harry B. Smith loosely based upon Scottish folk hero Robert Roy MacGregor. If you’d like to see a more accessible story of this historic figure, the 1995 film of the same name starring Liam Neeson and Jessica Lang is worth a rental.</p> Wed, 28 Aug 2013 20:36:00 +0000 Alison DelRe 26056 at http://wdiy.org Cocktails with a Celtic Name The Potato http://wdiy.org/post/potato <p></p><p>It is one of the strangest twists of fate that Ireland will forever be associated with the potato, an alien vegetable that was adopted as a staple food within fifty years after it was introduced to the land.

The average person has probably never even heard the word Lughnasa, even in Ireland where in modern Gaelic it is often called Lúnasa, meaning the month of August.</p> Wed, 28 Aug 2013 16:04:26 +0000 Alison DelRe 26040 at http://wdiy.org Lughnasa The flag of Ireland – And Thomas Meager http://wdiy.org/post/flag-ireland-and-thomas-meager <p></p><p></p><p>The flag of Ireland – And Thomas Meager</p><p>The national flag of Ireland is frequently referred to as the Irish tricolor.&nbsp; Beginning at the flag post, the colors are green, white, and orange.</p><p>The Irish government has described the symbolism behind each color.
