New pubs welcome addition to Old Main

Years ago on a visit to Ireland, we stopped in a town in County Kerry.

I want to say Killorglin. Or was it Kenmare?

Anyway, a local we met said one of the town’s claims to fame was it had more pubs per block than any other town in Ireland.

That’s saying something.

I suppose Thomas Stynes, a Dubliner and Bradenton pub owner of repute, can relate to that Irish idiosyncrasy.

He’s the proprietor not only of Rasher Tierney’s, down on 14th Street West, but of the new Irish pub destined for downtown Bradenton, thanks to the City Council’s approval.

It will be fifth bar on Old Main Street.

A quantity that has its critics.

Read more Sunday in Mannix About Manatee.
