Death of well-known Enniscorthy publican

By Dan Walsh

The death has taken place of John Doyle, (87), of Doyle’s Bar, The Duffry, Enniscorthy, who was a well-known member of the Licensed Vintners’ Association.

John grew up in the famed licensed premises of his parents, Joe and Brigid Doyle, and worked at Enniscorthy Post Office for many years, but when his father passed away John and his sister Mary ran the pub and on reaching retirement John concentrated fully on running of the popular meeting place for generations of customers.


There was always a strong family and customer relationship within the premises where sports and family celebrations were occurring on a regular basis. Strangely, it was always referred to locally as ‘Joe Doyles’.

FAMILY NOTICE. Beloved husband of Ann, dearly loved and loving father of the late Joseph and cherished brother of Bessie, Anne, Mary, Patrick and the late Breda. Sadly missed by his loving wife, brother, sisters, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends. May he Rest in Peace

Reposing at Browne’s Funeral Home, Enniscorthy today (Monday) from 7 o’ clock to 9 o’ clock for family and friends. Removal from Browne’s Funeral Home on Tuesday morning to St. Aidan’s Cathedral arriving for Funeral Mass at 10 o’ clock. Burial afterwards in St. Mary’s Cemetery.
