Ultimate Setup – St Patrick’s Day

Celebrating the Irish patron saint is a global phenomenon of stout-drinking, green things and penny whistle tunes. We’re adding these gadgets

Husky Guinness Beer Fridge

£90, www.beerfridges.org.uk

Listen up, fact fans: over five million pints of Guinness are sold in the UK on St Pat’s, and 13 million around the world. That’s 150 pints a second. This Guinn-o-fridge holds 30 cans of the black stuff just in case they run out at your local.

Angry Birds Seasons

59p/free, App Store/Android Market

Not content with its Christmas haul, Rovio’s seasonal addition to the Angry Birds line-up now inlcudes stereotyped leprechaun ‘pigs’, pots of gold and an abundance of clovers. Overkill much?

Olympus TG-810

£270, www.olympus.co.uk

We could have chosen any number of green-tinted cameras, but we resisted the urge in favour of this 14MP snapper, selected for its ability to survive even the most gruelling night on the tiles: waterproof to 10m, crushproof to 100kg and it’ll take a two-metre drop from the bar when you’re standing on it singing Wild Rover. When you wake up with a fuzzy head, its GPS will tell you where you’ve been.


free, App Store

Can’t be in the emerald isle for St Paddy’s? Although it’s a tourist guide, we like that this app comes with a warning citing mild alcohol and tobacco references. Proper Irish, then. Legally, we probably ought to add something about drinking responsibly in this. Drink responsibly. There.

Combination Bottle Lock

£12, www.amazon.co.uk

Got housemates? Teenage children? Don’t let them get at your Bushmills 16 while you’re swigging pints of stout in O’Flannigans Free House. This four-digit combination lock will keep your whiskey safer than a leprechaun’s gold locker.
