It had to happen. Rumours have been circulating for quite a while about Guinness abandoning St James Gate. When you base your marketing strategy on history, leaving St. James Gate was going to be difficult and leaving Ireland even more so.
Cue the cunning plan. Guinness was first brewed in Leixlip, Co. Kildare (less than 5 miles away as the crow flies from yours truly) so, Diageo have hit upon the idea of moving to Leixlip. I'd reckon that Kildare County Council are having wet dreams at the thought of the rates income involved.
See RTE for details.
