    I'd say it would be a hard task for anybody to get it up and running as a pub.

    The place has a bit of a 'reputation'
    I'd say it will cost a bomb to buy
    Balbriggan is fairly oversupplied with pubs at the moment

    Yeah and not a decent one among them.
    It's a shame to see it boarded up .if it could be cleaned up or something. .

    There was a proposal at one stage to demolish some of those buildings so as to bring the parklands into the town, down to the beach & attract more footfall. Dunno if that will ever happen.

    Never going to happen really, I can't see the leaseholders of Shaves or Boylesports putting up with that without a fight

    That would be a great thing if it did happen. It would give the town a lift especially after the work being done around the Library and Bracken Court and it would link up nicely with the park in front of Harbour.

    If the rents were put up or there was better alternative maybe they would be happy to move.

    Boyles - Probably
    Shaves - I doubt it
