Newry Spud’s Special investigative team can reveal today that the bloke who owns Art Bar Funkel on Monaghan Street is not called Art Bar Funkel.
We have sent several undercover journalists to the restaurant over the last year and the results are conclusive, although the man’s real identity remains a closely guarded secret.
We asked people on the streets of Newry what they thought, Sheila Fatspatrick, a 59 year old ex-world record tree surgeon from Burren said:
“I think it’s terrible. Our community relies on people being honest about their names and reflecting that in their business. Just look around, there’s Mr Cobbles who owns Cobbles pub, as well as Mrs Tuck who owns Friar Tuck’s, Newry relies on these people.”
