As if drinking Irish whiskey wasn't already a noble pastime, there is now a chance to place your taste for fine spirits in the service of a very deserving cause.
4Basra, a fund-raising venture that purchases medicines and medical supplies for a maternity and children's hospital in Basra, is offering a chance to win a case of Tyrconnell Single Malt with every donation.
The case (six bottles) was kindly donated by Dr John Teeling and Stephen Teeling, of Cooley Whiskey and David Horgan, of Petrel Resources.
