For ever associated with this incident, it won't be missed.

January 21, 1987
Two men blamed for terrorist crimes in Northern Ireland were shot and killed in the Irish Republic as they drank tea with two companions, both of whom were wounded in the attack, police said. The two gunmen escaped from the Rosnaree Hotel in Drogheda, 30 miles from Dublin. The dead men were identified as Thomas Power, 32, and John O'Reilly, 26, both of whom were linked to the outlawed Irish National Liberation Army. There was speculation that the shooting resulted from a feud within the INLA, a splinter movement of the Irish Republican Army.

Had some great nights there back in the day but that's for another discussion.
I heard they were putting in a nursing home there but couldn't get planning permission???

Saw the demolition crew there yesterday evening and I'm glad they're knocking it. I agree the place is a total eyesore at the moment.

Rosnaree = Europa?

If so glad to see it go. Nice location though - I hope something nice comes up there, and not another shopping center or apartment complex! With all that road frontage, I think it will be a great location for some sort of open plan garden center or something nice to look at as you approach town.

You mean it can get any worse?

It will always be associated with that shooting. I remember it like it was yesterday, its hard to believe that was almost a quarter of a century ago.

It will be forever associated with DJ Maurice, LJ Ray and Theeeee Place!
