They ran the pub, which was called "The Central Bar". Pub on ground floor. They lived above it.
Think they ran pub from marriage 1936 on.
The pub was re-named to "J.C. Barrett", "The Rale McCoy" (after the phrase "The Real McCoy"). The name refers to its McCoy origins and was also in honour of American cowboy actor Tim McCoy, who visited Glin tracing his family history and met with the McCoys.

I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.
Some research "things to do" are not done for years, because I do not have the money to do them.
