"We at Harry Byrne's have a unique history and a unique heritage. We take comfort in the fact that we've always been faithful to the ethos of the traditional pub despite the obvious temptations, over the years, to modernise. To have done so would have been an act of cultural sabotage resulting in the desecration of a 'Heritage' pub."
