There were 2 ‘JackFitzgerald’ pubs in Abbeyfeale at different stages. The old Jack Fitzs’ was later bought by a Tipp man and traded as Jack Ryan’s up to this Christmas, think it’s just closed now as he sold the licence.

The other ‘Jack Fitzs’ ‘is a much older bar but is still there and is known locally as’ John Michael Fitzs’ but John Michael has it leased out to another family for the past year or so.

Old one I reckon,uncle of mine ran it ,Ned Fitzgerald, dead now also


#764

Ah no :cry::cry::cry: that was a cracking bar. At least I if it’s the one I think with the big open fire


#765

Yeah, on the main street on the right about half way down the town as you come in from NCW side. Sad, was a fine little bar. The smoking ban never came into effect there!


#766

Fuck you Shane Ross :fist_left:


#767

Ah that’s shit. It was our go to bar in Abbeyfeale on the way to/from stags and matches. A savage little pub.


#768

A lot of the pubs in Abbeyfeale have changed hands in recent years. Nowadays a lot of the older pubs down New Street (the street towards the GAA Grounds and Listowel/Ballybunion) are in new ownership and have gotten a new lease of life, with loads of locals in their mid to late 20s/30s choosing to do their drinking down there nowadays in a weird Rural West Limerick small town hipster style movement

Resistance started tonight on RTE.
Average enough so far.


#773

Is this worth watching?


#774

Ah probably given the subject but it’s not outstanding by any stretch.


#775

The Collins chap is trying to overdo the Cork accent I think


#776

There’ll be a show based on the limerick Soviet staged in Limerick in April i believe


#777

Michael D isn’t going to the Soloheadbeg Commemoration.

That’s the way it’s gone now I suppose.
