A CHARLEVILLE native is bringing a bit of the country to Cork city's newest pub.
Ciaran O'Regan is the bar manager with Holy Cow, the latest addition to Cork's nightlife which opens this Friday at 6pm.
The Hanover Street haunt will open seven nights a week, late on Friday and Saturdays and promises the casual feel of a country parlour, complete with old-style snugs while offering plenty of room in other areas, such as the "Cocktail Barn."
The launch party will run from 6pm until late where patrons will be treated to live music and a DJ along with a range of complimentary canapés and cocktails such as 'Moojitos' and 'Cowsmoopolitans',
"We're very excited to bring a little country flavour to the heart of Cork City, and we're sure that The Holy Cow and its unique personality will become a favourite with the people of Cork," Ciaran joked.
"In fact, cows are much like us Corkonians - very social creatures, and very passionate about the colour red."
"With some great nights coming up over the new few months, my partners Jonny O'Mahony, Mannie Morgan and Niall 'Mazz' O'Mahony and I are expecting that people will enjoy The Holy Cow experience and would urge them, as always, to drink sensibly," he added.
The Holy Cow aims to create 20 jobs by June.
