Three sláintes for River Shannon, which celebrated its 65th birthday on Saturday, making it the city’s oldest Irish pub still in operation. Our photographer stopped by the following night for a peek at the Old Town tavern in its natural state—free popcorn and peanuts, cozy atmosphere, a trio of regulars taking shots of Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey at the bar—plus a tour of the pub’s memorabilia courtesy of a kind-hearted former owner who, like many of the spot’s usual suspects, keeps coming back.
