Re: Re: John F. Kennedy Memorial Hall
There is a plan of it on the wall of the Beggar’s Bush Pub. Also there is a photo of the original terrace of shop-houses on the site of the pub which were mostly torn down to make way for the JFK. For many years Mr Ryan operated out of what looked like a shack (of which there is also a photo on the wall) , but was actually the surviving ground floor of one of the buildings. I believe that when the present pastiche pub was buit in 1988 the plan of the bar was copied from the original. Ewan Ryan originally operated the re-built pub and I think he is the son of the previous Ryan. I think he retires and/or sold it to a cousin who now runs it, but I’m a bit hazy about that. And a recessionary tip, I think a pint of Beamish is only €3.50!
