As Tom & Eileen O’Shea depart from Charlie’s Bar & Bistro we would like to welcome incoming proprietor, Mike O’Connor and to wish him all the best in his new venture.
Mike is no stranger to Strand Road having served behind the bar for over 4 years making many friends in that time. Mike, originally from Knocknagoshel, served his time initially in the Muckross Park Hotel under the watchful eye of ” The Apprentice” guru Bill Cullen, a time he thoroughly enjoyed where to learned to hone his skills as a barman and host.
Mike is looking forward very much to returning to Strand Road, a community he has fallen in love with and to renewing old acquaintances as well as making many new friends.
He lives in Ardfert with his wife Linda ( née Fitzgerald ) and their daughters Hannah & Haley.
Official opening under new management takes this place this Friday night, Feb 9th with music on the night being provided by Andrew Hobbert.
