Anyone know about the brewery in Kells,Co.Meath. It's still standing, Oliver Ushers Auction rooms are in it now,you can still kinda make out the workings of it. He has a poster in the office with a bit of history and labels.

From memory, it ran during the 1920/30/40s ? and was Irelands first lager brewery. The lager was called Regal,as in lager backwards !
Mark.

There was actually a short lived lager brewery in Dublin in around 1899 I believe

The Dartry Brewery (est. 1891) was Ireland's first lager brewery.

"Jenky":wfsnzhcz wrote: Anyone know about the brewery in Kells,Co.Meath.[/quote:wfsnzhcz]It was called the Regal Lager Brewery. It opened in 1937 and shows up as being in trouble in stock market reports in 1949.

In January 1952 it was [url=http://s213.photobucket.com/albums/cc236/thebeernut/regalnotice.png:wfsnzhcz]put up for sale[/url:wfsnzhcz], and presumably Guinness bought it. It closed in 1954.

The gable wall of what was the Cornwall Brewery in Bandon, Co Cork was what we used to puc a sliotar against when we were smallies. The place is now a food processing centre owned by the local co-op (best butter ever) who rent it out in various units.

There is still an active spring well there with fantastic water, hopefully someday it'll be a brewery again (high hopes for the lad who just kicked off his first 3kg kit last friday night <!-- s:mrgreen: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green" /><!-- s:mrgreen: --> ).

Next time I'm home I'll see where I can get my hands on a relevant Bandon Historical Journal as the interwebs has nothing on the subject.
