The Track Bar, Garryowen

A LIMERICK City pub, which was a landmark gathering place for football fans in its heyday, has been auctioned for a figure said to be around the reserve price of €200,000. 

The former Track Bar in Garryowen has been on the market since last December. It was the place where Limerick Euromillions winner Dolores McNamara discovered she had hit the €115 million jackpot.

The distinctive yellow building just opposite the Markets Field Stadium was auctioned on youbid.ie.

It was also a popular place for people to gather after a night at the dog track.

The property includes an apartment over the pub which incorporates a bar and lounge area.
