Event description

Description

Join the Crowley family and local author Tom Spalding in Callanan’s Bar to learn a little about this gem of an Edwardian pub, the history of the parish, and see film of how Cork looked the pub was
built.

The event will consist of a short talk (with slides) dealing with the history of the development of the area, the architectural features of some local buildings and especially of the pub, and conclude with the showing of some short films of Edwardian Cork.

Callanan’s Bar on Georges Quay, Cork, was built c.1905 and is an almost unique survivor of a typical Edwardian public house. However, the majority of the building is much older, perhaps dating to the 1780s. The pub was originally owned by Arnott’s Brewery, but was remodeled as the ‘Carrigaline Bar’ for Murphy’s Brewery and for many years could only sell its produce; it was one of Cork’s hundreds of ‘tied houses’. It has been managed by the same family since the 1935 and retains many original features, including: century-old tables, a snug and attractive mirrored ‘back bar’. Participation is limited to 35 people, first come first served and strictly over 18.
