Amazing: Carrickmacross pub celebrates the 1916 Easter Rising by building mock GPO front




The country is showing all kinds of patriotism this weekend as we celebrate the lives of those who bravely battled to give us our freedom in 1916, but one bar in Carrickmacross went above and beyond to celebrate the centenary anniversary this weekend.

The owners of Jayz Bar in Carrickmacross paid tribute to those killed 100 years ago, by building a massive G.P.O. monument outside the front of their pub.

The mock building of was erected because the owners of the pub wanted to bring one of the historic sites and the scene of Ireland’s brave standoffs to their hometown.

We have to say it looks fantastic. Well done lads.
