The village pub
|Main Creator:||Doyle, Patrick M, photographer|
Traditionally, the village pub played a vital role in the life of the community. People gathered to share drinks, share local news and prices after fairs. Here a body could be brought for inquest. The pub was the place where births, weddings and even deaths were celebrated (Irish Wakes ). Today, the village pub is still vital and attractive. 'Lizzies' Pub in Rathdangan has held on to all that is good in the traditional pub culture. The publican ensures the place and environs are clean and tidy - see picture. She'll make a sandwich for the hungry, provide facilities for a game of cards at night time, give directions to the stranger at the crossroads and make life happier for all. She can be all things to all people.
