On the gable wall of Corrigan’s pub in Rathmines, there’s what looks like a blank pictureframe: a large white rectangle edged in brick and with a small triangle above it as if it’s hanging from a nail. It suggests a billboard or hoarding, or maybe a sign for the pub, but there’s something about that big blank patch that makes it hard to remember it having been any other way.

The plaques on the building date it to 1910 and name it Guinan’s, hinting at its previous existence as another pub by that name (sold in 1959).
