Celebrate the invention of Irish coffee!
After WW II Joe Jackson returned home to his wife Margaret (née Slevin of Ruskey near Convoy), who had bought a hotel in Ballybofey in 1945. The Jacksons started serving Irish coffees and other specialty drinks in their bar and the rest is history. The drink's reputation spread when in the early 1950s, a Scottish motoring magazine, described Joe's amazing new drink.
