Have you ever been served by this man?
On Tuesday evening, Irish Pubs Global Awards named their winners across the globe in categories like Best Irish Whiskey Experience, Best Food Experience and Best Sport Experience among Irish pubs on each continent.
Slattery’s Pub, situated on Dublin's Grand Canal Street Upper, Beggars Bush, now officially boasts the Best Bar Person in Ireland – and the entire world.
A man by the name of Pat Dempsey.
Irial Slattery, proprietor of Slattery’s said, “Known on a first name basis by the majority of our clientele and regarded as a local legend in the area, Pat is even registered on the till system as ‘The Legend’. As Pat looks forward to retiring later this year, it's safe to say Slattery’s just won’t be the same place without him.”
"With plenty of match day experience, Pat is no stranger to pressure and always keeps a cool head and the pints flowing. For a number of years, he has been responsible for running the pub’s upstairs bar during events and has played a huge role in Slattery’s becoming known for the place to be for pints before the game."
Slattery's had also been in the running for Best Irish Pub and Best Sports Experience.
