THE IRISH YEAST COMPANY IS SLOWLY FADING AWAY – 29 MARCH 2021
Yesterday I published some photographs that showed the Dublin Yeast Company as it was back in 2007 and I promised that I would revisit and photograph it as it is today, assuming that it is still intact.
The good news is that it is still there but there is no doubting the fact that it is, like an old soldier, slowly fading away.
Early in 2018 the Irish Yeast Company building was placed on the market as John Moreland, who lived above the shop for forty years, had died and as no one was interested in taking over business as a going concern.
The building at 6 College Street sold for €850,000 to Declan Doyle the owner of Doyle’s pub next door to Bowe’s Pub on Fleet Street. The plan was to knock through the wall of Bowe’s pub into the mid-18th century building and combining the site at College Street and Fleet Street.
