Are you talking about "McHugh's" below Honeypark ? I just remember old Mr McHugh as my grandad Cha Doyle' was a regular but early 1950s..Not sure who ruled the roost in '73, I was gone from these shores then sadly !!!

Check with "Farmboy or Grammer the usual Suspects " !!!!

I would have had a jar there fairly regularly about 1973 but I dont know who the Landlord was at the time, we wouldnt have been bothered knowing anyway. I remember a redhaired barman who worked there called Noel but thats about all. There was a little guy who drank there every Sunday night who had a strong dislike for a much bigger fella and pretty much every Sunday night the two of them ended up punching the heads off each other. Bloodied lips and black eyes were the norm, dont know why one or the other or both werent barred. I wouldnt fancy seeing that type of carryon now in a pub but strangely we found it rather entertaining at that time. :-|

Hi Gang.I believe Joe Fitz is running the Noggin Inn now.
Can anyone tell me the name of the man who worked in the Old Thatch, (in John McHughs time)Part of his duties was to fill the green bottles with beer direct from the Barrels.

It was John. Great little Pub then.It was famous for serving 50's,half porter half stout. A lot of famous characters drank there. I remember Cha Mullen who could down a pint in seconds. I was in a pub in Rathnew with him after a football match and he called for 4 pints and after the barman served him
Cha called him back and told him there's one short. Cha had downed one of the pints within seconds when the barman went to the till. Cha had some swallow,Lord rest him. Cha often tried the same stunt in the Thatch but they were too wise for him.

Denis
The guy you speak off Cha Mullins would you know if he had a daughter called Margaret, because at that time i was dating Margaret they lived in Kevins villas,i used to drink with them in the tatch most week ends,but the relationship finished in 1974 when i came to wales, dont know what happened to any of them after that

Cha came to live in Fitzgerald Park in the early 70's,he was married to Maura Seery and moved up to St. Patrick's Crescent, Maura's mother's house, in early 80's. His eldest daughters would be in their early 40's.

Dennis,
Do you remember an Aisling Doyle who moved to Fitzgerald Pk, Her Da had a shop top of Convent Rd. / Cross Av cannot remember its name..
Her and I were close friends and lost touch overforty years ago...

I played there in the Fifties when it was called 'Mackers' and the Strong Familt lived in the big house, Sarah and Rachel were two of the girls and a real nice family...

Enviro, I moved into Fitzgerald Park in November 1970 and left 31 December 1985. The name Aisling Doyle doesn't ring a bell. The shop at the top of Convent Rd. use to be Furlongs .It was a general store that sold lovely sweets and in my memory a little more upmarket that Farrell's or Doyles but that was in the 50's. Different owners came into it in the 60's and I couldn't be sure what they sold. I heard of Mackers but I was a Cross Avenuer and Monkstown Farm was out in the" Sticks". :D

Dennis,

They ate their young in the Farm..... My Grandad Connor said he preferred to fight the Fuzzy Wuzzies in India during his service than go into Carriglea Gdns. He reckoned that 'escapees from the Christian Brothers Prison nearby hid out there and by then they were to quote him, "Feckin Fir Bolg"....

Pat doherty,johnnie nevin,Donal o neil,Pat rice all managers at one time.John o brien, Gerry mulligan, myself, bully o connor all worked there under Doherty when the Thatch was the best pub around. Started as a lounge boy when you would have 8 or 10 lounge staff on at the weekends it was so busy.Worst thing that ever happened the Noggin when it closed, caused so many people to move out of the Noggin.After all these years people still talk about it.

Pat Doherty now owns The Carrig in Killincarrig Greystones ( formerly The Orchard) not far from DC
always found him to be a Good barman .He was the youngest Manager Madigans ever had when they took
over the Thatch. He was also very lucky to survive a very bad accident on the Noggin Hill when his VW
beetle collided with a lamp post
