A LANDMARK BUILDING in the north Dublin town of Swords will become JD Wetherspoon’s latest Irish outlet next week.

The UK chain bought one of the town’s biggest pubs, the Old Boro, which closed its doors for the last time almost a year ago.

It will open again next week as The Old Borough, bringing Wetherspoons’ trademark cheap drinks and all-day opening to a fourth Dublin suburb.

Here’s what it now looks like inside:

The building on Main Street was a schoolhouse for 191 years before it closed its doors for the last time in 2000. It then became the Old Boro pub.

It was originally designed by the architect Francis Johnston, who is best known for the design of Dublin’s GPO.

Wetherspoons says it has spent €2.8million on the refurbishment.
