Thread Name: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus?
Someone with a scientific background in DNA research could probably prove this one way or another, but I think (Gasp!) not that many people worldwide are interested in the answer.

I myself, however, am something of an authority on Bushmill's Irish whiskey (consumption thereof) and note that Black Bush is so called because the color of the whiskey itself is considerably darker than Bushmills other varieties.

So there!
