Friday Night Drinks @ The Black Sheep

The Black Sheep

See you in the Black Sheep for drinks, meeting new people and a bit of craic! Come in as you are for a relaxed couple of hours chatting. It's absolutely no problem to come in on your own as I will be introducing you to people, some of whom are also new, or are our regulars. We get people of all ages and from all over the world every week. Usually we hang around the space at the back of the pub to the left in front of the long mirror. Afterwards, some go home and some go on to late bars. I will be there at 8:30pm and if you are stuck call me at[masked]. The Black Sheep is a laid-back pub with a great selection of craft beers from all over the world. If it is your first time don't be shy - come over and say hello and you will be introduced to a great bunch of friendly people! I am tall with short hair and round glasses (for newbies). Caoimhghin
