In the true tradition of the Irish public house. The Irish public house has an important role in the life of Ireland and its people. It's a place for people to gather and meet, catch up with friends and local news, have a drink or just get in out of the cold.
When Paddy Hannan opened the doors of his pub, That's just what he aimed to do. Like many public houses back then, Hannans sold more than drink. You could buy tobacco cut from the block, a loaf of bread, half a dozen sliced rashers, tea and many other household items.
In those days public houses might have been all male preserves but a lady could enter the snug and enjoy a glass of stout or a schooner of sherry while Paddy filled her shopping order.
Paddy ran Hannans single handed , standing behind the counter in his full length apron, he believed the public house has always been there to serve the public and in the true tradition of the public house - that's just what he done.
