Back in March 2022 this famous pub was put on the market as the O'Rorke [maybe O'Rourke] family were retiring from the trade after 40 years. To the best of my knowledge it was known as the Punch Bowl until 1996 when it was sold by Ken Featherstone who had acquired the Victor Hotel.
I never noticed the plaque/inscription at the top of this building until today and the date is of interest as it indicates that the building existed before the Rathmines Township was created. Unfortunately, I cannot find any information specific to the building - are you in a position to help?
