Iconic sports bar Gerry Chawke’s in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, is the latest public house to be placed on the market. It marks the end of an era after almost five decades behind the bar for renowned publican Gerry and his wife Anne Carew Chawke.
Sherry Fitzgerald Power & Walsh are handling the sale and the ‘for sale’ signs were erected on Thursday September 28th, making what has been a long and hard decision finally official for the charismatic proprietor and his wife. Gerry Chawke purchased the bar in 1968 and opened his doors for the first time to coincide with the Irish National Coursing Meeting at Powerstown Park in February 1969.
