In fairness I am in full agreement with your general sentiment - if I'm on holiday with the missus or a random lads trip away an Irish bar would be bottom of my list of places to visit. I think there is a valid exception for Ireland away games though for obvious enough, non-twisted, reasons.

Haven't been in a Wetherspoons in years but there is one in town that's supposed to to have amazing architecture so will pop in there for a pint some time

Was in a pub in Carlingford once (up around the corner from Taaffe's) and  5 or 6 locals were sitting there watching RTE Nationwide.

It's used as a plot device in many films, that's why.

Charlie Chalk had big plans for it in the 90's but wasn't able to come to an agreement with all the cottage owners to sell.

Lot of people calling for a boycott of Spoons pubs when the virus has gone over Tim Martin's treatment of his staff but how many will actually go through with it?

Not many. It's a pub for people who can't get served anywhere else.

I was talking to a couple of people who work for microbreweries in Durham and Sunderland and they were saying that Wethersponns owe them 5/6 weeks money which they won't get till the pubs reopen.

That's one of the things he has been rightly condemned for. Whether his selfish arrogant ways will drive people away from his pubs only time will tell but I have my doubts. They're cheap-same reason Ryanair has been profitable despite the insufferable antics of Michael O'Leary. The Belfast Wetherspoons used to attract the dregs of society and employed a small army of bouncers to cope with all the fights but has evolved into an ordinary enough pub where cheap meals as well as beer attracted a healthy profit before the lockdown.

I don't know about Dublin but a large amount of people that go to the one in Cork are people who can't get served anywhere else. That and people too mean to pay €3:50 for a Beamish in a normal pub.
