It might be that it serves the best pint around or maybe it’s simply where everybody knows your name. Whatever the reason, a huge number of us keep a special place in our heart for the local pub.
As part of the Newstalk Best Local 2009, in association with the Vintners’ Federation of Ireland, customers in Mayo now have the chance to vote for their watering hole of choice and help it to get the national recognition they feel it so richly deserves.
Listeners of the Sean Moncrieff show on Newstalk 106-108 fm will be encouraged to text in the name and location of their favourite local pub. All those who vote will be in with the chance of scooping a top prize of a holiday worth €4,000 or one of four runner-up weekend breaks in Ireland worth €500 each. Log onto www.newstalk.ie/bestlocal or www.vfi.ie for further details.
