“Carlsberg Don’t Do Bonfires, Ballykeel 2 does. See the big girl. Who’s the daddy.” Ballykeel estate was built in two phases, in 1962 and 1972, with distinctive types of housing that allow them to be easily distinguished (WP) and each has its own bonfire. Carlsberg lager had a popular advertising campaign on the theme of ‘Carlsberg don’t do Xs, but if we did, they would probably be the best Xs in the world.’ See previously in Belfast If Carlsberg Watched Bonfires. For the bonfire itself, see Ballykeel Bonfire.
