Top of Coom pub burns down
Very sad news.
The Top of Coom pub was destroyed by fire last night (http://www.thejournal.ie/fire-destroys-top-of-coom-irelands-highest-pub-459336-May2012/ and http://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=144195). Fortunately, nobody was harmed.
Apart from being Ireland’s highest pub (though Johnny Fox’s of Glencullen, south Co. Dublin has always disputed the claim) it was a notable music pub and, of course, provided the title of Conal Ó Gráda’s first album.
My heart goes out to the Creedon family.
