Beloved Dublin pub announces closure 'with a heavy heart'
By Katy Thornton.
"As always in this country money talks."
Rumours swirled about The Clock's closure towards the end of last week. Twitter account Dublin By Pub tweeted they had heard the bad news from a few sources, but we hoped that it wasn't true.
Unfortunately, the Thomas Street bar took to Facebook in the early hours of Monday morning to confirm their immediate closure.
The Clock Bar's caption said the following:
"Hi folks with a heavy heart we closed our doors tonight for our final time we have had some amazing moments we tried our best to keep it open but as always in this country money talks."
The whole area surrounding the Thomas Street bar is being redeveloped, and unfortunately, The Clock is not the first pub in recent times to face closure.
In their Facebook post, The Clock thanked all their friends and loyal customers for their support in making their dream come true.
The Thomas Street bar will be sorely missed by locals from the Liberties. However, they did hint at their possibly opening a new bar, saying "till we see you all in our next venture thank you".
Maybe time isn't up on this bar just yet, we'll keep our fingers crossed.
