Byrnes Pub St. Patrick’s Day 2014

March 17, 2008 Joe & Pam Byrnes opened their hearts and their Irish Pub to the community. A lifelong dream come true. Our Navy Chief leadin’ hospitality like only Joe could.

This is family. This is community. And on this spot six years ago to the day, a picture was created of Joe and his daughter Maggie. Look at how much more gorgeous these two are today. With Maggie managing the Bath pub and her brother Patrick managing Bruswick, Joe & Pam get to spend more time as hosts and grandparents. Here we are six years later and the whole community rises up to celebrate everything Irish and everything good about community.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Happy Sixth Anniversary Byrnes Irish Pub…

Click on the photo above for a sample of some live music from Mariah”s Band.

Mariah Sewall had wanted to be a Librarian since she was nine years old. She has also wanted to write and perform her own songs and music. Today, she does both. Living and working in Mid Coast Maine, she works as a children’s librarian at The Topsham Public Library and as a songwriter and leader of her own band. She’s talented, friendly and wonderful.

She and her band were playing recently for the Winter Farmer’s Market at Bath, Maine’s historic Freight Shed. Maine’s First Ship, The Virginia, is rising just outside the doors of the shed. On New Years Eve, December 31,2013, volunteers, supporters and guests raised a glass to toast The raising of the last frame.
