Happy New Year! As we get ready for our post-Christmas episodes please enjoy our third ‘minisode’ courtesy of resident bartender, Alex Buckley. He delves into why we call our local pubs, our local haunts… at one of Dublin’s most Haunted Pubs, John Kavanagh ’The Gravediggers’ in Glasnevin. The main sources used were Valentina Valentini writing for BBC Travel and Atlas Obscura http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20161019-where-gravediggers-drank-their-pints and https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/gravediggers-pub-dublin, and Frank McNally writing for the Irish Times https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/old-haunts-an-irishman-s-diary-about-dublin-ghosts-1.2347566.
