The death of Tommy Smith of Grogan’s, South William Street, Dublin 2 has been announced.
In 1972, Tommy purchased Grogan’s and with co-proprietor Paddy Kennedy transformed it into a literary hub, maintaining the tradition of the true Irish pub – no music, no TV, with conversation as the central focus.

A friend of mine Dara Gannon photographed the patrons of Grogan’s [South William Street, Dublin] wearing Aran hats. He has seen the earlier post on Arans and wondered if you’d like to include it.
Can you name them all?
Isn’t it time you finished writing that novel?
