One of Bessbrook’s favourite pubs ‘The Pit’ has been forced to change its name to ‘The Pitts’ after receiving a negative report from the hygiene department from Newry Mourne & Down Council.
Known as a fovourite watering hole for the residents from Bessbrook to Newry the Pitt whilst never boasting to be a 5 star rated hostilely has been relegated by the council to a 1 star hygiene rating.
The owner Cillian McDonald who bears a remarking similarity to the fictional barman Mo from the Simpson’s told Newry Spud:
“Look I’m not bothered to be honest. Our clientele isn’t one that gives a flying shite about hygiene standards, I would say only 1 in 20 of them would own a bar of soap so it isn’t going to affect us in any way shape or form. And to be honest, I love the new name ‘The Pitts’ it really is an accurate reflection of this hovel.”
