Looking around the interweb to see where the beer fulacht theory has been discussed, and found this, the theory being discussed in the hallowed, um, threads (?) of politics.ie And our sincere apologies if we disappointed the person who did a search for ‘men in lederhosen’ recently and came across our Octoberfest post.

Phlllp Hensher (not sure if this is meant to be Phillip Hensher) writes in the Sunday Tribune today about displaying the dead. In a meandering and ill-thought out piece (imho) he criticises the unveiling of Tutankhamun’s body and rails at the ‘recent’ habit of displaying the bodies of ‘unremarkable’ people. By ‘unremarkable’ he seems to [..]

Beer bibliography – Moore Group

For those of you who have a deep interest in the Archaeology of Beer, Spirits, Wine and Pleasure in general, here’s the beginning of a big beer bibliography and source list, with a very brief description of the contents.


About Marine – Moore Group

Billy Quinn Here’s a summary of excavation work carried out by Billy for Moore Marine at Raheen Mill, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary last year. Found throughout the world Humpbacks feed mainly on Krill, a type of shrimp-like marine crustacean and other small fish. Our source in the Marine Institute has tipped us off to the following excellent links…. The Marine Institute is the Irish national agency responsible for Marine.


About Environment – Moore Group

By 2005 we had built a great deal of experience in environmental consultancy, and we advertised this service a little more seriously with this advert designed by Bloom Advertising in Dublin. There’s been mention recently in the Irish and International media of the controversial process of gas extraction using hydraulic fracturing or ‘fracking’ as it’s come to be known.


About the Aquaponics – Moore Group

It appears from the hits that we get, that there are still a lot of people out there that are interested in aquaponics and the good news is that for those of you who are, but weren’t sure how to go about it, life just got a whole lot easier. Nigel’s fled to the warmer climes of Western Australia for a well deserved holiday, so this is just a quick photo-update on our small experimental backyard aquaponics facility.


Assemblage – Moore Group

On architectural job losses and planning, more garbage patches – this time in the North Atlantic, Irish Film Stereotypes, Atheistic visitors to the Emerald Isle, Adolf Hitler and his fondness for Trad and. Gathering stuff from the internest on Beer, Archaeology, the Environment, Aquaponics and anything else that strikes us as interesting, since May.
