All-Ireland winning Captains bar was open after-hours

A pub run by an All-Ireland football captain was still open three minutes before 2 a.m. but raiding gardai were told clients were waiting for taxis home although fresh drinks had just been poured for them, a court was told today.

Anthony Molloy, Donegal captain when the county won it’s only All-Ireland title in 1992, admitted his first after-hours offence at his Central Bar in Ardara on December 11 last year and his barmaid Geraldine Curley admitted aiding and abetting.

Judge Paul Kelly said at Glenties District Court if Mr Molloy paid a €200 donation to the Vincent De Paul Society he would apply the Probation Act. Ms Curley was also given the Probation Act.
