Coming to a place near you: Irish pub experience goes global
The ‘Irish Pub’ experience is set to grow as 6500 such watering-holes around the world are now to come together under the umbrella of the Irish Pubs Global Federation.
The new federation is a follow-on to the previously established Irish Pubs Global and will give Irish pubs worldwide a platform to coordinate their activities.
Founder Enda O’Coineen says it is a way of combining its members’ presence into something greater than their whole, TheJournal.ie reports.
“Before there was never a way to co-ordinate this huge resource for everyone’s benefit and that’s where the Federation comes in.”
The strength of the Federation’s numbers – 6500 outlets – provides an opportunity for Irish hospitality suppliers and smaller businesses to connect with each other on a world-wide basis.
While the industry is very well-organised at home, internationally there was no real strategy to promote business for the pubs.
Explained O’Coineen. “With the internet and new technology we can bring it all together. Now with all members pulling their weight a little bit, great things can be achieved.”
