And from the distant past

A snippet of history in Co Antrim 1798, from 1169 and Counting.

Apparently the body of Henry Joy McCracken was taken to a hostelry on or near the site of the current Morning Star pub, just after his hanging in a vain attempt rouse him back to life.

Unfortunately for them, they were unsuccessful, but the pub can still muster a decent pint of stout to this very day.
