A PUB THAT IS NO LONGER IN BUSINESS – MATTS CABRA HOUSE
This derelict pub is located across the road from St Finbar’s primary school and GAA club.
The pub is now best as being the place where Eamon ‘The Don’ Dunne was fatally wounded in April 2010.
I have noticed in old photographs of the building and advertisements that it is spelled ‘Faussagh’ but elswhere it is ‘Fassaugh’ … are there two different spellings?
This pub was also known as Matt Whelans and I also believe that it may have been known as the Fassaugh House Pub when the gangland killing took place in April 2010.
