Pub is short for Public Houses where places that people could enter which did not require private membership, thus while the more affluent in society frequented Private Houses which did require membership, the Irish Pub offered the working classes a place of their own.
In more recent times the Irish Pub developed into a resemblance of what we have today. Although banned in the early 19th Century by British legislation, pubs naturally began to flourish as a form of opposition. Not only did the local pub offer ale it also provided essentials such as food and hardware items.
The Irish pub has always been considered as a place to find a warm welcome, a place to listen to irish music, a central point for the local community to gather and exchange stories and indeed gossip.
