The Publicans Lunch

About Us

In 1987 a group of affable, enterprising but battling publicans decided, as a collective, to run a lunch each Tuesday at a pub of one of their number. The group included Tony Counsel, Keith McNaughton, Gerard Rush and Peter McWilliam, with Bob O Kane soon to join the ranks.

35 years later the Publicans Lunch is still going strong with get togethers held on a Bi-Monthly basis.
