This family business, now known as Nuala’s Bar & Restaurant was originally established in 1850, as Mc Cormacs. It was first run by Patsy Mc Cormac who later handed it down to his only daughter Bridget. Known locally as Baba, Bridget later married John Durack after which the pub became known as Duracks. Baba ran the pub until 1997 when she retired.

It is now run by Nuala and Paul Kilkenny. It has only had three different licensees in one hundred and sixty five years, a rare occurrence in pubs in Ireland.
