The Irish Pub

The Irish Pub is a eulogy to the greatest institution in Irish society, the pub or more specifically the traditional Irish publicans who run them. The characters in this exceptionally endearing film all run and own pubs that have been in their families for generations and it is through their warmth, wit and wisdom that we gain an insight into the heart and soul of The Irish Pub.

Reviews:
"Itís like a safety valve for the population of Ireland," Keane says. "We probably have less psychologists than any other country in the world. But thereís probably no country in the world who needs them more." - The Washington Post

"The Irish Pub" plays like a portfolio of lovely postcards, with splendidly photographed pictures of quaint buildings, cobbled streets, breathtaking landscapes, and smiling faces as hollowed and worn as the centuries-old stone floors of the title taverns. - The Boston Globe

2. Thanks! So much is the same in Boston, it's one of the best things the Irish brought

with them when the potato famine drove them out of Ireland. What they lack in longevity, they make up in craic.

5. A distant Cousin of mine created this character.

Very popular with Teddy Roosevelt. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Dooley

"The year 1902 saw a steady stream of high-quality Dooley pieces written by Dunne, with the barkeeper philosopher commenting on the events of the day, including King Edward's coronation, Arthur Conan Doyle's tales of Sherlock Holmes, and Arctic exploration. But most were on American politics. That Dunne was often a guest of Roosevelt at the White House did not spare the president from being skewered by Dooley, nor was the former Rough Rider's aggressive foreign policy spared. Dunne disliked imperialism, and was outraged by the actions of U.S. forces in the Philippine insurrection against American rule; he satirized Governor William Howard Taft's glowing report on progress there, "We are giving hundreds of these poor benighted heathen the well-known old-fashioned American water cure ... Everywhere, happiness, content, love of the step-mother country, except in places where there are people"
