Louis Fitzgerald, a kingpin of the Irish pub trade, has bought the iconic Galway city pub Tigh Neachtain.

The deal comes as a much-needed confidence boost for a sector hit hard by Covid-19.

Fitzgerald declined to reveal what he paid for the Quay Street pub's freehold but told the Sunday Independent that he was happy the current tenant would continue to operate the business.
