    Nursing home keeps spirits up with own pub

    A nursing home in Ireland has hit on a cheering way to keep up the spirits of its elderly patients -- by providing its own pub. St Mary's Hospital in County Monaghan, near the Irish border with Northern Ireland, believes ready access to a good pint may help its patients -- average age 85 -- actually live longer.

    "We would say the whole social aspect of life does extend the years -- it means the patients aren't bored to death," Rose Mooney, assistant director of nursing told Reuters.

    The pub, which opens at 11 a.m. and closes at 9 p.m. and charges normal bar prices, had also led to an increase in the number of visitors, she said.

    Seems like a nice place to go visit now

    Wonder if we will catch Colin Farrell runnin' around at pub time turning to snag the older women. I hear he has been trying to do that as of late. Gotta love those Irish boys!

    But really, what wonderful addition to a nursing home. Why not let them have some fun during their elderly years, they do so deserve it.
