Irish fishermen net liquid treasure

`Fishermen from both sides of the Irish border netted an unexpected early Christmas present, hauling in bottles of cream liqueur near the English coast, a drinks company said.

The bottles of Carolans Irish Cream liqueur were part of a consignment of 8,000 bottles lost last month when a container was swept overboard in a storm in the Bay of Biscay.

The fishermen’s nets brought up the bottles in special presentation packs that had been destined for the Christmas market in Spain — so they scored not only a tipple but also the glasses from which to drink it.’
