A Galway councillor claims "thousands" of empty Buckfast bottles have been found at the bottom of the Claddagh Basin in Galway.
It's been partially drained as part of upgrade works in the city. Labour's Niall McNelis has told the Connacht Tribune a whole host of items have been discovered.
“You have about 100 traffic cones each costing €40 or €50 each... There is an iron board in there, a filing cabinet, a television, and thousands of bottles of Buckfast and litter and rubbish has been exposed."
The tonic wine made by Benedictine monks in Buckfast Abbey in England has long been a beverage of choice for students. It's become particularly synonymous with Galway over the years.
It's also popular in Scotland. Just mention it to a Glaswegian and watch their eyes glaze over in nostalgia.
