The Late Late Show


Pat is proud to support
Power 4 Good Ireland

The village also played its part in the more recent rock 'n' roll history. While on tour in Ireland in January 1965, the Rolling Stones breezed into the village on their way to play the Savoy Theatre in Cork where they played one of their last gigs before embarking on their third tour of the U.S. (the one on which they wrote and recorded "Satisfaction"). While Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts took tea at Mrs. Farrell's eating house, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones nipped across the street to what was Barry's Bar but is now Pat Shortt's , for slightly stronger refreshments before they set off for the city. The documentary "Charlie Is My Darling" directed by Peter Whitehead (limited release in 1966) depicts a very brief sequence of the band getting out of their car, an Austin Princess, by the Bridge, outside what was then Shaugnessy's premises, now the site of the Village Greengrocer.

People driving through Castlemartyr often ask "Is that Pat Shortt's bar?". Well the answer is yes, and in the last few months Pat has taken a very personal and "hands on" interest in his pub. Recent visitors have noticed a different buzz and vibe about the place.
