The Magic Carpet, Cornelscourt
|Main Creator:||Laffan, Moira, photographer|
In 1846, this public house was a farmhouse occupied by Nicholas Byrne. Patrick Byrne opened a grocery business in the 1860's and later a public house. After his death on 1891, the business was taken over by Bernard Rogan, who, with his, wife ran it until about 1915. They had a butcher's stall at the Northern end of the pub. The Connollys, who took over from the Rogans called the pub the 'Cornelscourt Arms' and also ran a shop there. Samuel Beckett, who was a native of Foxrock, refers to Connollys Stores in 'Company' and 'After the Fall'. The present owner is Mr Kevin Crowley. His father bought the busines in 1950 and changed the name to the 'Magic Carpet' . There is now a lounge bar, a wine shop , a restaurant for functions and an office services business run by Mrs Criowley from the premises.
