It has not been a good month for Irish bars. Good night, Conor O’Neill’s.

So much to lament. Conor O’neill’s, the much-loved Irish bar in Boulder, will be departing with “one hell of a bash” on Oct. 1 and Oct. 2, its owners announced yesterday.


A manager told the Boulder Daily Camera that 18 months of construction on the building next door dealt the death blow.

Meanwhile, in other Denver-area laments, Delaney’s and the Celtic Tavern said goodbye this weekend. Curiously, all three bars were 16 or 17 years old.

Good night, sweet Irish drinking class of 1999-2000.
