An Portach, meaning The Bog, is a new pub that opened up recently in Tullamore. Its situated where Weir’s, or was it Wyer’s, pub used to be. Mauricio of Heartworks did the sign on the front. He also made two mirrors for them, one in the main part of the bar over the fire place and the other in the ladies’. In the corner you’ll find a chess table top made by Heartworks. Some decoupage of ours adorn the walls too, old style photos of Tullamore and the book of Durrow.
I wish them the very best of luck, those brave men, opeing a pub during these uncertain times. They’re unstoppable. Fairs due to them!!!
