A landmark Irish Pub in New York with strong Leitrim connections is set to close at the end of the month.
Rosie O'Grady's on Seventh Avenue in Manhattan is co-owned by Aughavas native Mike Carty.
The popular bar and restaurant was first opened in the Wall Street area in 1976 before moving to its current location in 1981.
It emerged in the Irish Voice newspaper this week that the venue will close on Friday June 30th. According to the publication an issue arose over rent forcing the pub and the owner of the building to go to an arbitration panel, it found in favour of the landlord.
Mr Carty told the Irish Voice the rent on the property was 3 million dollars per year.
The Leitrim man first moved to the U.S. in the 1960's, and in August of last year he was awarded by New York GAA with a Lifetime Achievement Award at Croke Park. Mr Carty co-owns the business alongside Mayo native Austin Delaney.
