SAINT JOSEPH’S STREET – EMMET PLACE
According to Google Maps this pub has ceased trading. I noticed that they have spelled Emmet as Emmett.
St. Joseph Street (formerly Richmond Street), so named because of its proximity to St. Joseph’s Church.
This pub was owned and operated by Eric and Florence Lynch but unfortunately, for health reasons, they decided to close it in 1997. Florence and Eric, who passed away within a year of each other and were very well known and much liked in Limerick.
This pub was the first in Limerick to have music, the first to get a music licence. The pub was also famous for its 10 pence a game pool table and they owners maintained the price at 10 pence for decades. Back in the early 70/80’s it was also one of the first pubs to show movies as they got a Betamax player when they first became available. [Note: Betamax was launched May 10 1975].
