Cheers for nursing home residents
Only the Irish would think of this.
DUBLIN, Ireland - A nursing home in Ireland has hit on a cheering way to keep up the spirits of its elderly patients -- by providing its own pub.The thinking being that the patients still like to socialize and have a nip and it will prevent them from being "bored to death." I think they're probably right. In any event, it's a huge success with the facility reporting an increase in visitors. Good for the resident's morale, I would think.
St Mary’s Hospital in County Monaghan, near the Irish border with Northern Ireland, believes ready access to a good pint may help its patients -- average age 85 -- actually live longer.
