    This heavy 5 lbs, 14 1/2" by 4 3/4" solid brass plate has a saying that I always thought was Irish in origin. Who is this BOEL and why the date 1864? I found nothing on-line or in reference books on Boel. It was found in a flea market this past weekend. Thanks for any help you may provide.

      Looks like something You would see hung up in a Irish Pub and dated for opening date? with Pub Owners name. Lots of Boel in Ireland back then.

      Thanks Dizzydave.....there is probably a Boel somewhere who had this made for his bar or house as you say. Not sure that it is that old. Thank you Vinyl33rpm, yougottahavestuff, AnythingObscure, bobby725, AnnaB and fresco for the loves. RER

      I think dizzydave is onto something, as i found this drinking rhyme to be an old Irish "Toast." The only difference is your copy has two words added, ie. the G-Damn. I found nothing on the Boel name association.

      Yea, old timers strikes again, the last line is different as well. Lets just say it is a play on an old irish toast, (imo), and leave it at that!!! Lol
