One such pub named after the famous folk singer is located on the corner of 29th St and 2nd Ave in New York City. Paddy Reilly's Pub was opened in 1985 by an Irish footballer from Cavan, Ireland. The small establishment provides customers with the warmth and atmosphere of Ireland. Such bands as Black 47, The Prodigals and The Mickey finns have performed on its stage. Paddy Reilly once owned the pub but has since passed the buck to former partner Steve Duggan.
Reilly went on to replace Ronnie Drew in The Dubliners in 1996 until 2005 when he left the group. He still owns several bars in New York. Paddy Reilly's Pub still provides customers an authentic Irish experience. However, will the sightings of a ghostly apparition, whispers and shadows discourage visitors from wanting a taste of Ireland's charm or make the pub popular than ever?
