Mooney, The Mad March Hare

Mooney epitomised the rebellious Irishman of old. Under the guise of a fruit & vegetable business, he distributed his famous Poitín throughout the land. Mooney had developed an infamous relationship with the law and was affectionately known by locals to be as ‘mad as a March Hare’. His tipped bowler hat did little to dispel this fitting moniker!

The Hares

Irish Hares (lepus timidus hibernicus) are found throughout the wilds of Ireland. Their breeding season peaks in March, when they are often seen ‘brawling’ in open fields, to win the admiration of deviant females. The term ‘as mad as a March hare’ is often used to describe someone who is easily excited and unpredictable. Mooney fit the bill just nicely!
