Woolwich road. Yep still going.
Marquis of lorne off Landor road
Hand in Hand Brixton hill
It was in the eighties. It also opened early morning doing breakfasts for builders.
there's the kilkenny tavern, close to south wimbledon station. no personal knowledge other than passing it now and then.
I've been a few times while waiting to meet someone. Definitely qualifies, as if the name wasn't a giveaway. Some old coot spontaneously started playing his fiddle and some of the regulars got up and started dancing last time I was there.
Went in yesterday (Gipsy HIll Tavern )...irish songs were being sung
The Park (west Norwood) is also nominally Irish, I think. It (coincidentally?) has an inordinate number of wakes.
The Man of Kent in Nunhead.
Hasn't changed much then
Millwall pub as well.
Happy of dirgeful ?
i have a strong memory of going into the pub that is now the Florence in Herne Hill (which sadly i cant remember the name now) - that was an irish pub - it was a tuesday IIRC and it was karaoke night - cue old boys singing sad songs, one with real tears running down.... the mood of sadness is one ill never forget
I was in the Florence a long time ago with my Irish pal who was with a Jamaican. Irish bar staff, a few punters. But it's not like that anymore.
