Irish Pentathlon

by Theresa O’Connor on 8 October 2003

An Irish Pentathlon is to drink (in one night) these five beverages, listed here in no particular order:

  • Irish cream
  • Poitín (pronounced potCHEEN, Irish moonshine)
  • Irish stout
  • Whiskey
  • (Hot Whiskey) Punch

The phrase was coined by Dan “The Liberator” O’Connell while we were drinking at The Field one night in the summer of 2003.
