A Donegal pub owner put an ad in the newspaper blaming customers for closure


A PUB OWNER in Rathmullan, Co Donegal has taken out an ad in the local paper sarcastically thanking customers for not drinking in the bar.

Big Paddy’s Bar closed in the past few weeks, and the owner (the eponymous ‘Big  Paddy’ perhaps?)  hasn’t let the doors shut without a parting shot to would-be regulars.


The last activity on the bar’s Facebook page was on St Patrick’s Day, with a poignant “trad session tonight”.

Thanks to Nigel for sending this in.
