IPC...R.I.P?

AFTER trading for almost three decades and creating more than 1,000 Irish bars from Sydney to Shanghai the 'Irish Pub Company' has called a creditors' meeting, triggering fears for its survival..

Any word of the outcome of this meeting?

I visited a few of the Fado bars in the US and they were very well done a la the Porterhouse fit out. what killed this off was not the lack of design but the equity stake that Diageo wanted for funding the fit outs in a market where getting the buildings themselves was the hard part. There will always be a market for Irish pubs and refitting existing ones but I very much doubt the scale of the mid 1990's in Europe/US or the early 2000's in Asia will ever be repeated again.

If in a far flung place and you wanted to catch the rugby they were a godsend; hopefully a rump will survive :(
