Galway pub An Púcán has employed an Elf on the Shelf just in time for Christmas

Watching over you as you pint.

Pure happiness #Galway

AN PÚCÁN PUB, just off Eyre Square in Galway, is looking pretty festive at this time of year with sea of Christmas lights hanging off the front.

And last night they went one better – they introduced everyone to their new staff member:

Damo the Elf on the Shelf

Our newest staff member! His cv was epic.

Now, those familiar with The Elf on the Shelf phenomenon will know that parents leave the figure on their mantelpiece to keep watch over the kids – and he moves around in the middle of the night.

Damo has other priorities in An Púcán by the looks of it

For a staff member, he seemed to spend most of his first night drinking the profits

Talk about a good first impression

He came in like a wrecking ball

His exploits entertained everyone on Facebook last night – and given there’s another couple of weeks until Christmas, it’s going to be a hectic work schedule for Damo.

He got a lift home last night

Despite having an… incident out the window

Poor Damo.

He’ll be grand for tonight though – and ready for all the Christmas season brings.
