An Arkle Cocktail!

Look at this for a cool email from Raymond Hunt at the Londonderry Arms Hotel. The “Arkle Cocktail”, whatever next?!

“We in the historic Londonderry Arms Hotel, in the picturesque Harbour Village of Carnlough,in the beautiful Glens of Antrim ( think and speak of Arkle every day! Why? Because the hotel boasts an Arkle Bar since an Arkle Club was formed in the hotel in the Fifties. And tourists love to touch one of Arkle’s shoes , which he wore when winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 1965. The shoe was presented to the hotel by Tom Dreaper when he and Pat Taffe visited the Club all those years ago. Visitors can still get an “Arkle Cocktail” in the Bar!”
