First Meeting

Just curious... Is there a record of who attended the very first Irish Whiskey Society meeting? Or who was there the night the society was proposed?

Hi John,
I could probably give you a rough idea from memory. I believe there was an 'attendance' sheet passed around, informal as it was.

Hi John,
That's a bit like asking who was in the GPO in 1916?
Wasn't everyone there that night?

I think we got a glass on the night? Can that be used as evidence of attendance?
