Default Death of the Irish boozer.

THE IRISH PUB, says the Lonely Planet travel guide, is the country’s number-one attraction. Yet it is also doomed, according to leading food writer John McKenna. Health campaigners have its products in their cross-hairs, but the truth is that many of us are increasingly indifferent to its long-standing charms.

Is the pub really doomed ?
Maybe.
Especially if they carry on thinking all punters want is a telly set to Sky News, indifferent service, no food and mawkish stout.
Costing even more than it did during the Celtic Tiger.
Fuck it lads, publicans deserve to perish in a pool of their own greed.
