The 'original' Maltings opened onto the main road (Woods Street). I'm going back to the late 70's / early 80's here. The original entrance/doorway is still there . The bar was on the right hand side as you walk in , high stools at the bar and a man by the name of Eamonn O'Callaghan was the owner/manager. He had an all year round tan with slicked back grey hair and gold-rimmed glasses. Constantly smoked a cigar as well .

Ring board and dart board were on the left hand side wall facing the bar and the main seating was straight in from the front door along the facing wall. Most importantly for me at the time, they had a table-top Space Invaders cabinet. Many's the Sunday morning spent watching fellas who looked like Lemmy from Motorhead, resting their pints on the glass whilst playing it. Whilst the older men played Don.

Happy Days. We, (the children/teenagers of the dads what were drinking in there) would spend most of our time on the road outside. There was hardly ever a car passing. Home for dinner at the holy hour on the Sunday. Me dad used to bring me there after his GAA match on Sunday mornings .

The Millwheel was across the street from it, it had pool table(s) so attracted a younger crowd. Great memories,
Remember the maltings and the gilt edge
