Traditional Irish Wake

Doctormhl1 | Aug 28, 2009 12:48 PM

Following the death of Senator Edward Kennedy this week, I notice many Pubs and Restaurants are holding an "Irish Wake" to celebrate his life and giving him a traditional send off.
Having never attended an Irish Wake, I would be grateful to anyone who can fill me in on what a typical Wake is like with respect to food, drink, and general mood. etc. etc.Thanks.
