Decline of the Irish Pub

Tá Seachtain na Gaeilge ar siúl faoi láthair. Beidh RTÉ Archives ag féachaint siar ar chláracha Gaeilge ó chartlann RTÉ i rith na coicíse roimh Lá Fhéile Pádraig.

Today we take a look at the documentary series 'Léargas' that ran from 1996 to 2008 on RTÉ Television and covered a wide range of topics. In 2007 the 3-programme strand 'Deireadh Ré' set out to record some of the disappearing local institutions of Irish life. This extract is from 'An Pub', a programme about the decline of the country pub in Ireland broadcast on 14 May 2007.

Presenter Padraig O'Driscoll says that 800 country pubs have closed over the last three years. "Cén fáth? Cá gcuirfimid mhéar an mhilleáin?" Deir tábhairneoir Michael Folan go bhfuil na costasaí an-trom. Dar le Diarmuid Mac an Adhastair, aisteoir a bhí ina thábhairneoir, go bhfuil saol sóisialta na tuaithe millte gan na tithe tábhairne.
