A GROUP OF men in Limerick have turned an old trailer into a mobile pub – complete with Guinness and Heineken on tap, tea and sandwiches.

The Mobile Pub was the creation of artist Mick Fortune and his partner Aileen Lambert, who focus on community art projects.

They bought a mobile windows showroom…

“The idea was in the back of our heads since 2001,” says Mick. “But I thought it’d never work, what with the logistics for the license.”

He put in a proposal for Limerick City of Culture 2014, and it was accepted. Since January they have been working on the mobile pub.

The pub – called MEET, the Mobile Irish Pub – is now touring local events. “There are sandwiches, tea and biscuits, proper Guinness and Heineken on tap – for free for the hour and a half event,” Mick says.

It’s about community, groups getting involved and investing thought into how the pub could be used. Rural culture.

The Mobile Pub is running for the month of July, and will end on the August Bank Holiday weekend.

What’s yours?
