In Reply to: Paddy Moran's Pub celebrates 50 years of pulling pints posted by John and Ann Moran on April 14, 2003 at 15:57:29:
On behalf of John and Ann Moran ( Proprietors ), Bridie Moran, and all the Moran family and staff of " Paddy's " in Rush Street, Castlebar, we would like to thank the ever-faithful customers and friends, for their constant support and friendship during the last 50 years.
Those who were privledged to have known my father and frequent his premises will have many happy memories and tales to tell, to the members of the family who worked with him. John, Pat, Francis,Noel, Patricia, Ann, Bernie, June and myself had a trade at a very young age and were all taught in detail how to pull the " Perfect Pint" by both Mam and Dad.
Pat and John have continued in the business, carrying on the knowledge they were reared with and yes there is a certain amount of " Paddy " that is very prominent in both of them.
Many characters filled "Paddy's" on a nightly basis and many pints were given and received with mutual respect, that is what made "Our Pub" in Rush street a joy to visit. All customers became good friends and continue to do so.
On this special occassion, we would like to remember Dad and all the deceased customers and we would like to thank all our customers both young and old for their continued support.
