A colleague of mine has just had to book an sudden appointment with his dentist first thing tomorrow morning. He just bit into a Connemara Kitchen® Traditional Toffee and pulled a crown off.

The Plain People of Ireland: Connemara Kitchen®? So this would be a Traditional Irish Toffee, would it?

It would indeed.

TPPoI: And would this toffee have been bought by someone in Ireland itself.

That would be the case.

TPPoI: Perhaps by someone who was returning from a trip to our Isle, and who wished to bring his colleagues a taste of our fair country?

That would be quite likely, yes.

TPPoI: And the timing, sir. If these toffees didn't appear till today, then presumably the person would have still been away yesterday.

That sounds plausible.

TPPoI: So tell me: when were you this time yesterday?

Why, we'd just taken off from Dublin airport.

(With apologies to Myles na Gopaleen, whom it is time to reread.)

Oh, good grief, no. The label under the tin indicates they come from the well known Connemara conurbation of Rathfarnham Village, about an hour's walk south of St. Stephen's Green.
