The €1 Pint!

Michael O’Leary goes into a pub in Cork and asks for a pint of Guinness.
The barman nods and says: “That will be one euro”.
A pleased O’Leary hands over the money and comments: “That’s very cheap”.
“Yes sir, it is” replies the barman, “however, if you want
to drink the Guinness in a glass, you’ll have to pay an extra
€3”.
The Chief Executive scowls but pays up. He takes his drink goes towards a seat.
“Ah, sir, if you want to sit down, you’ll first have to sit in
this frame,” observes the barman.
Unfortunately O’Leary can’t squeeze into the frame. “Nobody
could fit in that little thing,” he complains.
“Then you’ll have to pay a surcharge of €5 for your seat,
sir”, cautions the barman.
“This is ridiculous,” cries O’Leary. “I want to see the manager”.
“Certainly sir”, responds the barman. “Here is his email
address or, if you wish, you can contact him between 9 and
9.10 any Monday morning. Calls are free until they are answered.
Then there is a talking charge of only 10 cents per
second.”
A furious O’Leary swears he’ll never come into this pub
again, to which the barman answers: “That’s perfectly O.K
sir, but remember we’re the only pub in Ireland selling pints
for one euro!”

First time I came across it. And I find it quite hilarious to be honest!
Ok, it is hilarious to a point (and old), but surely there is an easier and more accurate joke about the Dublin Airport Authority.........at least Ryanair is the world's fastest growing airline.

Sorry matey, I am a bit of a bollix I'm afraid! :)

I used to work in a pub that always had a £1 pint on offer (early nineties). All the old lads used to love that!

In the early 70's a friend of mine asked me for the loan of tuppence, tuppence? said I, for what? well I have a pound and if I had tuppence to add to it I could buy 6 pints.

Then Richie Ryan came along and made a balls of it.

My first legal pint cost me 10p - 2 shillings in real money.
I paid 30 shillings for my first pint, you must be as old as the hills petunia
