I am a pub owner in Dublin, Ireland on St. Patrick's day. And we aren't open!!
Hey folks, it's me (Gar) again. Back for what is a tradition by now. My annual AMA. I believe this may be my 6th year of doing this. We are The Thomas House, located on Thomas Street in Dublin. This would normally be one of the busiest weeks of the year for us. As you probably know, on Sunday 15th March 2020 we were asked to close alongside every other bar and venue in the country to try slow the spread of Covid-19. I thought about skipping this years AMA, but maybe some people might be interested in what's involved with small businesses like ourselves and the virus. I'm here for a while to answer your questions.
**After so many requests I've set up a quick gofundme HERE This will be a pre order drinks system the details of which will be posted on our Facebook page later **

During this break I will be focusing on my podcast "Lost Art" which is on all apps. Our FB page is HERE We usually record in the pub but during this time we will be broadcasting live radio on the Internet every few nights.
