PICS: This pub in Carlow had an epic Christmas party...in July
It's never too early.
The 12 pubs of Christmas is still an established yuletide tradition in Ireland but there's no denying that December's most famous pub crawl has encountered a bit of a backlash in recent years. We know that people are looking for a bit of craic, but are they really being that original, bold and daring if there are thousands of other people doing the same on the exact same night?
The patrons at O'Loughlins's bar in Carlow have the perfect tonic to any cynicism surrounding Christmas parties though because they've created a tradition that's certain to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to their customers.
