SINNOTT’S thatched pub in Duncormick

Sinnott’s Pub in Duncormick, locally known as Sammy’s, went under the hammer today after being in the Sinnott family for over 230 years.

Sammy ran the family business, which was founded originally by his great grandmother who ‘left a pub in Cullenstown in 1795’ and came to start ‘Sinnott’s of Duncormick’.

The sale was prompted following the death of legendary owner John ‘Sammy’ Sinnott who passed away in January 2020, aged 91 years, and he is commemorated in a memorial seat in the village

Kehoe and Associates, Wexford, conducted the auction arrangements.
