The Bernard Shaw on Richmond Street South, Dublin 2.; The Porterhouse Whitworth at Cross Guns Bridge, Glasnevin, Drumcondra, Dublin 9
Further to the news that the Bernard Shaw in Dublin 2 is closing…
Marie Clare Digby, in The Irish Times, reports:
Trevor O’Shea’s Bodytonic hospitality and entertainment group has taken over the Porterhouse Whitworth, at Cross Guns Bridge, and when the Bernard Shaw closes at the end of October, as much of its footprint as possible, including the Eatyard food truck space, is transferring to the new venue. Even the name may be re-used.

I found this bike unlocked (abandoned?) in the Drumcondra region of Dublin on Sunday. If anyone can let me know where they left it and the bike’s serial number I’d be eager to reunite it with the owner.
UPDATE: Owner located. Thanks all.
