An Irish Times review used the word 'pubaurant' and people weren't having it

At all.

IN YESTERDAY’S IRISH Times, there was a complimentary review for Dublin restaurant/bar Marcel’s on Merrion Row.

As lovely as the review was, there was a word used in the headline that has sparked scenes across social media.

And that word was ‘pubaurant’

An obvious portmanteau between pub and restaurant might seem innocuous enough.

But it’s struck a nerve

Irish people have come together with a clear, unified voice on this important issue

Pubaurant might not catch on

It just hasn’t had a good debut weekend in Ireland

Some portmanteaus are more equal than others

This was bound to happen

The people have spoken.
