Recently it was reported that An Garda Siochana had decided to notify the proprietors of John Kavanagh’s (AKA The Gravedigger’s) that they need to stop people from bringing their pints outside the pub and enjoying them on the green space to the front of the pub.

Gravediggers calls time on enjoying a pint outside – Independent.ie

One of the most famous pubs in Dublin has been told by gardai not to allow anyone to take drink or food outside its premises. Since 1833, Dubliners have long enjoyed drinking pints outside the iconic John Kavanagh’s bar in Glasnevin, more commonly known to Dubliners as The Gravediggers.

Now, personally, we’re more at home drinking our pints within the confines of the unadulterated perfection that is the bar in The Gravediggers, but when we saw this it just didn’t sit well with us. I mean, by all accounts this is a practice which has gone on for years with little or no major complaint. Along with this, there is no uniformed policing of this law across the city – so to single out The Gravedigger’s seems a bit unfair. And last but not least, how many actual days do we get in this sunforsaken city of ours that we’d be able to retire onto the green to have a few scoops.

So we decided to start a petition….

Sign the Petition

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500! It was recently reported in the news that Gardaí are to clamp down on the tradition of having a few pints outside Kavanagh’s (aka The Gravediggers) pub in Glasnevin.

Though, slow at first – the petition started to take off. Hundreds of signatures began to flow in and we even saw a bit of media attention.

Petition launched to repeal ban on pints outside Dublin’s most famous pub

A petition has been set up to repeal the ban on drinking outside one of Dublin’s most famous pubs. It was reported on Wednesday that Gardai had told the owners of Glasnevin watering hole, John Kavanagh’s ‘The Gravediggers’ that they could no longer let customers bring their pints outside.

John Kavanagh in Glasnevin – better known as ‘The Gravediggers’ – is famous for its atmosphere, traditional food and absolutely cracking pints of Guinness. Located right next to Glasnevin Cemetery, Gravediggers draws a huge crowd of both locals and outsiders who flock to the historic pub to soak up some old-school Dublin charm, with the pub famed for having no singing, dancing or TVs.

A PETITION has been launched to repeal the ban on drinking outside iconic Gravediggers pub following public outcry. Gardai told the historic Glasnevin pub, John Kavanagh’s, also known as The Gravediggers, that they are not allowed to let punters to bring pints outside the premises.

So please do sign the petition if you’re with us and fed up with this nanny-stateism! It’s only a few pints sure.

Last month Pintman №2 and I were delighted to be in the awesome surroundings of The Open Gate Brewery as we made DublinByPub’s first tentative steps onto an aural platform.

As part of their Open Gate Series, we joined the sound gang of lads from The Fine Ale Countdown podcast.

We had a good chat with the lads about all things pints and pubs and no doubt we managed to fit in a fair bit of nonsense too. Search it out on your podcast app of choice or follow this link to have a listen .

We’d like to thank The Fine Ale Countdown lads for having us on, and a big thanks to Alan and all the lads at the OGB who looked after us while we were in. You can read up on our thoughts on The Open Gate Brewery (which are based on a previous visit) Here.

We recently teamed up with Irish Tatler Men and are delighted to announce that they’ve allowed us some space in their fantastic magazine to wax lyrical about the pubs of the capital. We’ve written a few words on The Piper’s Corner for their current (Spring) edition.

 

The latest edition (as seen above) is out now and we’d love for you to pick it up and let us know what you think about Dublin By Pub’s first non-digital post.

Recently we were delighted to chat to the lovely Annemarie McCarthy in Lonely Planet who was interested to hear about our thoughts on Dublin and Irish Pubs, and chat about DublinByPub in general.

We’re delighted to note that our interaction was nicely summarised and put into article form and is available to view at your convenience from the link below.
