I stand by my argument. In those days, men were men, and women were men too. So a few splinters wouldn’t have put them off.
The orgies bit is a logical progression of the assumption that they suffered from far fewer hangups [but not necessarily hangovers] in those days. Don’t forget – this was long before Saint Paddy. They knew how to live..
Oh! And by the way… I’m putting in for planning permission for a round tower on An Fear Marbh. It would add that final touch?
