One of Newry’s best known bars is to change its name it has been revealed.
Nan Rice’s on Francis Street will now be known as ‘The Moon’ due to the lack of atmosphere within the establishment.
The local drinkers from the Ballybot area who already are notorious for being as funny and welcoming as a fart in a spacesuit claim they like it that way.
One drinker at the bar told Newry Spud:
“I’m delighted they are changing the name to reflect the atmosphere to be honest. We like our bar to be slightly unwelcoming, unfriendly and lifeless, pretty much like the moon I suppose.”
