THE BRIAN BORU PUB WAS A BIT RUN DOWN BACK IN AUGUST 2008
It is interesting to note that owners of the Bernard Shaw are planning to relocated at a site across the street from the Brian Boru.
Hedigans features in Ulysses as the pub where mourners stop on the way to the cemetery. The pub is reputed to have been built on the site where Brian Boru camped before the Battle of Clontarf.
Early in 2008 AN BORD Pleanála overturned planning permission for the partial demolition of a pub mentioned in James Joyce's Ulysses, to make way for a six-storey apartment development because of its "excessive scale and unsympathetic design".
