Folks think I'm mixed up when I mention this Pub, thinking I mean the Old English Gentleman.
There's only 2 people I've spoken to who knew of it,one of them being joney a wiki member who sent me this message

I was born in the Old Irish Gentleman at 330 Price St where my father was the manager, and afterwards moved to the Lord Exmouth. The Old Irish Gentleman was bombed during the blitz and although not demolished it was closed. The brewery secretarys name was kept above the door as the licence holder and this licence was surrenderd together with the Priory licence in return for a licence for the Pelican.

The 1911 census doesn't give its name, but a Pub it was.

The Old irish Gentleman Pub as I remember was on the corner of
Aberdeen St and Beckwith St by what was then called Trinity St
school,its now grassed over with a few trees planted as well.
I used to attend the school and think the Pub was demolished
in the late sixtys as well as a Pub diagonaly opposite called
The Bull,corner of Beckwith St and Vittoria St Opposite what is now a convenience store .

The Gents was on the end of Livingstone street, the building is still there but I think it's a cafe now.
Yes the space invaders table was an arcade type game set into a glass topped table so you could play whilst having a sit down and a drink smile

I think that "space invaders" table machine was in the "Shamrock" Pub which was nearby...I used to walk over the bridges with my missus and we'd end up playing that machine for ages...The Shamrock was bought out by the factory either side of it, and it was demolished and the only way you would ever know that it had ever been there is that the brickwork is newer in the space where the wall was was extended ...it was one of the few pubs that sold draught Carlsberg (a Wilson's brewery Pub).

Used to drink in the Shammy and the Gents when I was home on leave. Never went to the Bank of Ireland but remember it from when I used to go to Trinity Street School. The Bull I didn't bother with either. I thought the Old Irish Gentleman was on Price Street more up towards the Town Hall, around or just past the Cathcart Street area, my memory's a bit fuzzy on that one.
