MARCIE REGANS PUB AT ST. PETER’S BRIDGE – NEWTOWN TRIM COUNTY MEATH
This pub was owned by a member of my extended family but I have never been in it [my mother, a Regan, claims that her father brought me there when I was young but I have no recollection of visiting].
It could be described as a small [tiny] traditional pub located in a beautiful spot beside St Peter’s Bridge near the town of Trim. My mother claims that it was popular with professionals who wished to avoid visiting pubs in the actual town.
Currently it claims to be Ireland’s second oldest pub (next to Sean’s Bar in Athlone – I do remember remember visiting it) but my mother was unaware of such a claim. It now has a beer garden with a view of the ruins of St John’s Priory which is close by.
