'Irish Seven Course Dinner' item is six beers and a potato in Peoria pub
Anger as Donnelly’s Pub lists the old Irish stereotypes as meal choice
An Illinois pub and restaurant, Donnelly’s Pub, claiming and trying to be some sort of authentic Irish pub, has been making headlines with its inclusion of an “Irish Seven Course Dinner” in its menu.
Included in the Irish Seven Course Dinner? Six beers and a potato.
And just in case you had any other ideas, the menu points out that, “You Can’t Sub A Potato For Another Beer.”
The Daily Edge in Ireland points out that a “real” ‘Irish Seven Course Dinner’ - which is used in what they call “begorrah-themed Irish pubs the world over,” uses only Guinness.
Donnelly’s Pub in Peoria, Illinois is just doing its best to pretend to be Irish. Also included in the restaurant’s ‘Pub Specialities’ is “Gallway Salmon,” though Galway is misspelt.
Need some dessert after your ‘Irish Seven Course Dinner’? Look no further as ‘Shamrock's Jamison Irish Coffee,’ (where Jameson is misspelt), and ‘County Cork Mud Pie’ are offered for anyone looking for an authentic Irish experience.
The so-called ‘Irish Seven Course Dinner’ is, thankfully, not as politically charged as other dessert items are that have popped up elsewhere.
Just last week, IrishCentral reported on a London pub that served a “Sundae Bloody Sundae,” evidently making a mockery of Derry’s Bloody Sunday in 1972.
Belfast native Andrew McGibbon, who afterwards set out to shame the establishment for their politically charged dessert, said, “The cocktail arrived - ice cream, chocolate sauce and a little toy soldier toting a rifle on top,” adding that he found it “grossly offensive.”
John Kelly, whose brother Michael was among those shot dead in Derry on Bloody Sunday in 1972, called the drink “bloody well scandalous.”
“For anyone to make a profit by naming an ice-cream cocktail after the murder of our innocent people is totally disgraceful and insensitive,” Kelly said.
“They should be ashamed of themselves and they should withdraw this from their menus now. No-one with an ounce of human respect should buy this; it’s an insult to the memory of our loved ones,” he told the Derry Journal.
Similarly controversial is the ‘Irish car bomb’ drink which mixes Irish ingredients Guinness, Bailey’s and Jameson Whiskey. Car bombs were a hallmark of a time of violence in Northern Ireland, known as The Troubles.
