There was a house there called Union Hall house which was named after the Act of Union 1801 and gave its name to the village then.

The house was burned to the ground by the Ira in 1921.

Thanks, that's very interesting. I always assumed that Union Hall was a building, not a small village in West Cork.

They smoke a lovely salmon down there to be fair to them.

Ha touché. I was down in Leap on a Sunny afternoon around a year ago, and there was certainly some wacky tobacky being puffed outside the pub we were patrons of.

I didn't want to mention the pub by name but you may or may not be correct.

On a completely unrelated note, Connollys was an absolute mess that afternoon. It was around 3 in the afternoon and people were fighting and being kicked out. Fish go Deep were playing that night and people were clearing making a day out of it.

That place was always a Mecca for the hippies. Been down there a few times myself.

It's a cool spot but full of the kind of people I'd cross the road to avoid.

The types who hang around pubs all day with dogs and drinking coffee. They wouldn't last 5 minutes up in the Banner, I'll tell you that for nothing.

Apparently Anathema played in Connollys back in the day, which must have been bizarre.

Never heard of them. It's a venue so all genres of music have been played there.
