Ashgabat’s Irish community are excited over the imminent opening of the city’s Irish pub, due on 17 March – St Patrick’s day. President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov is showing a personal interest, visiting the future venue to give the staff the benefit of his experience in styling party venues for the masses.

The venue admittedly looks rather bare at present, especially the area projected for the beer garden. But President Berdymukhammedov’s inspiration, combined with detailed instructions to the workers, will ensure the complete fitting out of the exciting new venue by the celebrated date.

“This will be right up there in Ashgabat’s social calendar,” Lord Venal, our regular friend barside, enthuses. “My charming young assistant has already put it in my diary.” He is intending to fly in for the event and expects, as is customary on his visits, to also be received at the presidential palace.
