Wow, those Irish really do like their vices

Umm...I couldn't get a picture of this when we were in the car yesterday, but we drove past a building in downtown Dublin: Royal Liver Assurance. However, with all I've heard, seems like insuring Irish livers would be a losing business.

In a similar vein, the Bingham Cup tournament was sponsored by paddypower.com. Paddypower was the biggest sponsor there, and they had their name on everything...from the field end zones to the tents to all the shirts that were sold. The whole time we're there, I'm thinking "what's Paddypower?" As we were driving back to the hotel on Saturday after the day's matches, I noticed a storefront location for Paddypower. The business line? Bookmaker. Yes, that kind of bookmaker...not the publishing kind.
