Down The Hatch celebrates 20 years in business this weekend

It’s hard to believe that 20 years have passed since that most inviting of pubs, Down The Hatch, first opened its doors in Church Street, Roscommon.

  The quaint and cosy premises indeed ‘made its debut’ in 1996. This weekend, the popular proprietors, Larry Brennan and Seamus Haydenwill celebrate 20 years in business there. There’s entertainment, refreshments and craic all weekend, with the fun beginning on Friday night

  ‘Down The Hatch’ may be its official title, but to the thousands of customers who have socialised there over those two decades, it’s affectionately known as ‘The Hatch.’

  Over the years the Hatch has established itself as one of the most popular ‘GAA pubs’ in the West of Ireland. Indeed all sports are viewed and discussed – often at length – in the famous Church Street premises. It’s also a popular venue for political debate – and the one ever-present on the agenda is good craic!

  Proprietors Larry Brennan and Seamus Hayden wish to thank their loyal customers for their great support over the past 20 years. Everyone is welcome to join the celebrations this weekend and Larry and Seamus look forward to seeing you.

  The 20th anniversary celebrations kick off on Friday night with music by Derek Campbell. The celebrations continue on Saturday night with DJ Seamus Duke. – PH
