I’ll just take the hangover… thanks!

According to Irish folklore, it was said that the cure for a hangover was to bury the ailing person up to the neck in moist river sand.This could have the same effect as a cold shower. It’ll wake you up and get the blood pumping, but there’s not much medical evidence that it cures a headache and nausea.

To the river!”IrelandSHARE THIS:Press ThisTwitterFacebookGooglePinterestEmailPrintLinkedInTumblrTelegramWhatsAppSkypeRedditRELATEDPILTOWN, CO KILKENNY AND ITS INVOLVEMENT IN THE WAR OF THE ROSESIn \”Irish History\”1978 – DEATH OF MÁIRE BEAN UI SHEAGHDHA (NÉE CREMIN) WHO WAS KNOWN LOCALLY AS \’MARY GEO\’.In \”Irish History\”
