The view from nowhere

From Belfast's Lagan Valley

On July 5th 2004, the owners of the former Caffrey's brewery, Interbrew, announced their intention to dispose of the site of the brewery. This will bring to an end 310 years of brewing history, of which all but fifty-three, were the history of my family. My thanks to Peter Rush for bringing this to my attention. My thoughts are with the employees, who must be worrying about their jobs. Good luck to local MPs as they try to help lessen the blow to West Belfast. Beannachtaí ar an obair.
3, Usher's Quay, Dublin.

The Mountain brewery and Thomas R. Caffrey's house, 'Airfield' - now gone - beside it.
