Once a popular public house in the Dingle, the Dick Jennings is now closed and run down on its way to becoming one of the Buddhlia buildings.

Actually it isn't a bad looking building architecturally. But who was Dick Jennings?
Les Auld: No idea Chris, thanks for the comment.

It always amazed me how street corner pubs would remain standing long after the streets were demolished. It looks as if their time has now come.
Les Auld: I suspect it has Chad, thanks for the comment.
Sad to see it go, but go it surely will I guess
Les Auld: I'm sure it will go Bill, thanks for the comment.

Oh dear.. another symbol of the community about to meet the demolisher's ball, I should think. I quick Google shows this for Dick Jennings http://dickjennings.com/ I guess that could be a different Dick Jennings, though!
Les Auld: I guess it is Alan, or I had made a quick trip to Pittsburgh without realising it. Thanks for the comment.
Looks as though it was quite a fine building at one time Les, another bit of our heritage on the way out by the sound of it.
Les Auld: As with so much Brian, thanks for the comment.
I like very much your post processing : Bravo !
Les Auld: Thnaks Zeb, appreciate it.

Nice finish to this Les,any local info on who Dick Jennings was? or which brewery was involved if any? Lets hope the butterflies make good use of the Buddhlia.
Les Auld: No ideas Brian, although I was contacted by someone on Flickr whose family had owned the pub. Thanks for the comment.
A shame to see the old days going..and these pubs are going fast. Like your pping Les.
Les Auld: They are indeed Ron, disappearing with the older generation, thanks for the comment.
