Cavan Cola (Wikipedia)

Cavan Cola was a brand of soft drink produced by Cavan Mineral Water Ltd. in the town of Cavan, Ireland. It was introduced in 1958, and was sold in 250 ml and 710 ml bottles in shops in counties Cavan, Monaghan, Sligo, Leitrim, Louth , Donegal and Meath. The product proved so popular there that it went national in the early 1990s. In 1993, the still family-run Cavan Mineral Water Ltd. was taken over by Finches, who began phasing out Cavan Cola. By 2001, Cavan Cola had disappeared from most shops, even in County Cavan.
