(c. 5,020 sq.ft.) of accommodation briefly comprising ground floor public bar, lounge bar, games room, extensive stores and spacious living accommodation overhead.  The entire is presented in mint condition throughout and is in truly walk-in condition.  Outside there is a large parking area.”
The pub was built on property that originally belonged to Murphy’s. See: Murphy’s ‘The Dairy’ Davidstown, Co. Wexford Census 1911 Maggie Murphy singlehandedly ran post/office and shop. She was so gentle and kind to my mother. My mother loved going to Davidstown to visit the Murphy’s. The latter were well known for their gentleness, they would give their dinner-food and hats and gloves to poor shoeless children at the local school. Eileen was also very kind to me, I stayed with her on holidays at the farm in Clonroche. I was so at home there and felt that that was the kind of environment I should have been born into. I remember being told by Eileen that none of Murphy property was to leave their hands. There was a funny rumour about Nick the devil hanging about the pub when it changed hands. Typical country piseog, (Béarla) Irish piseog superstition.
Pat Murphy who was ran the Dairy passed on the land to Eileen’s son, who is still there. Pat sold a large scalp of land to the council before he died, so there is a housing estate,
(click on street images within the following link, and you will see the neat housing estate, as well as surrounding Murphy land) The Millenium Bar, Davidstown,, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford MyHome … that I ‘m sure has now brought life into the otherwise tiny farming hamlet, approximately six miles from Enniscorthy. Pat had a long time girl-friend. She looked after Toberona House for years, and I think she inherited it.
