Name of pub in Merrion Centre

Postby Normalhours » Sun 25 Jun, 2017 9:05 am

Hi all

I am racking my brains trying to remember the name of the pub in the Merrion Centre (I've read the previous posts and the names suggested don't ring a bell plus they seem to be at the Morrisons/old market end).

It was where the new Jumbo records is now (past the works shop) from the early 80s to early 90s. I remember it having a kind of large bay window with small panes of glass at the front.

I also remember the Emmet Machine "man on the bike in the large class casing" being outside when it was positioned down that end of the Merrion Centre.

For some reason I have Woosters or Woodcock in my head (Not Wayfinder as I think that was at the opposite end).

Hope you can help.

Thanks

This http://www.network54.com/Forum/283664/t ... n+head+in+) suggests if you are thinking of Woosters then it was the Wayfinder before and the Jug and Bottle after. The Jug and Bottle was on the corner of Wade Lane and Merrion Street down the ramp of the Wade Lane entrance. There is an incidental 2005 picture of it on Leodis where the main subject is the Cube (St John's Centre)
