Steven Grant Rogers cannot possibly like men, because a combination of Irish genetics and being brought up Christian makes you immune to Catching The Gay. Stay tuned, more to come.

The Dullahan: Irish 

The dullahan (also Gan Ceann, “without a head”) is a variation of an unseelie faerie that serves as the herald of death. The headless rider may be seen on a carriage constructed from skeletons, pulled by six headless horses, or riding alone on a black charger with a skeletal spine for his whip. No matter their method of transport, the faerie makes no sound as they ride, indicating their otherworld origins. The headless horseman carries their grinning, glowing severed head under their arm, using the rotting head as a lantern for the journey. Locks and gates will open for the rider as they need. If they should discover someone watching them, they are prone to lash out the watchers’ eyes with the whip or dose the watcher in blood to mark them as the next victim. When the dullahan stops riding a person is due to die. The only noise the creature will make is a single utterance of their victim’s name, causing them to immediately pass away. The only way to prolong the dullahan’s inevitable arrival is the presence of a gold object, causing the rider to temporarily flee.

Townie (Barrel House Z)

Brewery : Barrel House Z
Beer : Townie
Style : Red Ale / Irish Red Ale
Variance : Aged in Rum Barrels for One Month

8.5 / 10

This beer is a tribute to Boston and all of those fucking scum bag assholes that live there. Imagine if I really meant that and started this review that aggressively? My balls would be the size of Russell Crowe’s fists but instead I know my place and I know that most of the fine residents of Boston could kick my ass so instead we’ll celebrate them by raising a glass of Townie in their honor. Honestly when I first saw the name of this beer I instantly thought about the movie The Town with Ben Affleck because that movie kicks serious ass just like this 9.2% ABV beer kicks some serious ass but instead of hiding behind a nun’s mask, this beer is fully exposed in my clear snifter. A super smooth caramel flavor starts things off with some vanilla and mossy flavors mixing in towards the middle before ending with some slightly boozy flavors mixing with that vanilla caramel candy flavor to close. This is such a super flavorful brew and if it wasn’t for the fact that it is only my first beer by these guys, I probably would have given it a 9 because it is that delicious. This is definitely for the more experienced drinkers out there even though the ABV is relatively hidden and the flavors blend together so well but for you newcomers out there, bust through some hood rats first before coming back to the one and only Townie!

Peerage of Ireland

Title: The Rt. Hon. Viscount of Mayo.

Motto: Fortune favours the bold.

Subsidiary titles: (Gaelic Nobility) Mac William Íochtar (Lower Mac William) Chief of the Name and head of the senior branch of the De Burgh Dynasty/House of Burke (1st creation).

(Peerage of Ireland) Baron Naas, of Naas in the County of Kildare (1776 - 2nd creation, title used by the heir). Viscount Mayo, of Moneycrower in the county of Mayo (1781, 2nd creation)*

Created: (1629, 1st creation) (1781, 2nd creation).

Seats: N/A (1st creation), Derryinver House, near Clifden, County Galway (2nd creation).

First holder: HM The Mac William Íochtar, King of Lower Mac William (Tiobóid na Long Bourke/Theobald Bourke, 1st Viscount Mayo (1st creation).

The. Rt. Hon. John Bourke, 1st Baron Naas (2nd creation).

Current holder: The Rt. Hon. Charles Diarmuidh John Bourke, 11th Earl of Mayo, 11th Baron Naas, 11th Viscount Mayo.

Heir apparent: Is the present holder’s eldest son Richard Thomas Bourke, Lord Naas (b. 1985).

*The first creation came in 1627 in favour of Tiobóid na Long Bourke. He was the son of Gráinne O'Malley, chieftain of the Ó Máille clan and Queen of Umhaill and her second husband Sir Richard Bourke. The second Viscount was created a Baronet in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia in c. 1638. His son Theobald, the third Viscount, was also created a Baronet in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia in c. 1638 (no records of this creation in the Great Seal). The 3rd Viscount was executed in 1652 after being found guilty of murder by Cromwell’s High Court of Justice in Connaught. The murders in 1642 became known as the “Shrule massacre”, Lord Mayo had done his best to prevent them. The 3rd Viscount’s daughter Maud married Col. John Browne, ancestor of the Marquesses of Sligo, who was also directly descended from Queen Gráinne.

After the death of the 8th Viscount the titles became dormant/extinct, It is believed that a legal right continued, but the next claimant could not afford the legal costs involved in presenting a petition to the Irish House of Lords.

The title was recreated for a very distant cousin, John Bourke, 1st Baron Naas, in 1781. He was subsequently created Earl of Mayo in 1785, and as such the title today is a subsidiary of the Earldom of Mayo.
