Lemon & Duke. Dublin’s newest bar opens today. Good food, tank beer, a unique draught range and a stylish but welcoming vibe, the all new Lemon & Duke is the latest venture by former rugby pros Rob and Dave Kearney, Sean O’Brien and Jamie Heaslip with business partner Noel Anderson, follows their recently extended Ballsbridge [Dublin 4] bar The Bridge 1859.

I live in Wexford and I’m one half of The Breathers, a seasoned transatlantic musical partnership with my friend Rob Womack in Kentucky. We just made a short video for our song “Rattlesnakin'”. It’s pretty hilarious and we hoped you’d like it… Maybe some of your readers would like it too?

Tighty whi- Fight!

“After months of speculation, The Bridge 1859 was officially announced today as the name of the Ballsbridge bar formerly known as Bellamy’s. Recently acquired by Noel Anderson of The Grafton Lounge alongside Ireland and Leinster Rugby stars Jamie Heaslip, Sean O’Brien and brothers Rob and Dave Kearney, The Bridge 1859 looks forward to welcoming a ‘scrum’ of customers from the end of September…”
