I was looking at Effin on the map.
It's not a town or village,but a townland.
There is one bar with Effin as its address
https://www.facebook.com/davysbar/
I think it's the only place around that you could get an Effin note.
I was in Charleville a few years ago an saw Effin on a road sign.
I was heading back to Galway and didn't have the time to try and find the place.

The "town" is in fact an unpopulated place on the Faial island, and its name is Cu de Judas. "No cu de Judas" (literally, "in Judas's arse") is a Portuguese idiom meaning very far from anywhere, like "in the middle of nowhere" or "below the horizon" or "at the end of the world" or "god-know-where".

I never mentioned Cu de Judas before because I didn't know it was an actual place (sort of). I was only familiar with the idiom. :lol:
