Over 100 people gathered in Anglesboro last Wednesday week to discuss exploring an application for a social club license.

Chairman Seanie Hanley addressed the community on the night, explaining the new idea, which local man Dan McCarthy had come up with, of aiming to get a liquor license for the community centre.

According Mr McCarthy, the community heard in August, that the local pub which had been operating for around 100 years, would not be reopening. The Galtee View Bar and Lounge had closed at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, like many businesses around the country.
