What is the history of the restaurant?
It was founded by the late Brian O’Leary in 2010.
He and his wife, Joanne, opened the restaurant in September 2011, two years after opening the Ballymore pub on Stoney Lane in Dublin’s Docklands.
It was opened in a time when Dublin was experiencing an extraordinary boom in restaurants.
The couple had been working at their own restaurant, The Irish in Clondalkin, Dublin, when Brian and Joanne moved to Clondall in Cork to open their own Irish restaurant, O’Reilly’s Irish Bar and Grill.
They opened The Irish at Clondal, Dublin in November 2013.
The Irish was named after a young Dubliner who was killed when he was hit by a bus.
Brian and his family came to Ireland from Northern Ireland when he turned six years old and was born and raised in Clonmel, Co Cork.
He then spent his childhood in Co Limerick, where he was a part of the school rugby team.
He attended Clondock Academy in the 1970s, and attended St Patrick’s College and Trinity College, Dublin.
He graduated from St Patrick and was admitted to Trinity College Dublin in 1978, where in 1983 he studied economics and became a professor of economics.
He also worked in the local business and finance sector, as well as for a number of community groups.
He received a B.
Sc. from Dublin City University in 1987, then went to the University of Strabane, where his thesis focused on the Irish economy and the Irish-British trade relations.
He became a member of the Faculty of Finance at Trinity College in 1992, where the latter was a member for the next two decades.
His teaching was then transferred to the Institute of Irish Studies, Trinity College.
In 2002, he became a Professor of Economics at the University, and in 2004, he was elected as a member on the Faculty.
He is currently the President of the Institute.
He has also served as a lecturer in the Department of Economics and International Trade at the International Business School, and has held posts in the Economic Policy Institute and the Department for International Development.
He was awarded the 2017 L.G.M.B.C. Ireland Award for outstanding public service.
