One Irish pub still celebrated Arthur's Day yesterday


YESTERDAY, WE DISCOVERED that a bar in Jundiaí, Brazil was hosting an event for Arthur’s Day.

Is this the only pub in the world still celebrating the day, we asked, after it was axed in 2014?

Er, no. Some Irish pubs are still coyly celebrating it.

Reader James Gannon sent us this photo from Spells Bar in Ballaghaderreen, Co Roscommon, which was advertising a cheeky Arthur’s Day event.

The difference between the Brazilian event and Spells’ event is that Spells definitely knows that Arthur’s Day is no more. Look:

The Day Formerly Known As Arthur’s Day

Keeping the spirit of the great holiday alive with showbands and Guinness cakes. We doff our caps, Spells.

Thanks to James Gannon for sending this in!
