Ve­vay Inn de­mol­ished to pre­pare site for devel­op­ment

Bray People - - ABOUT GREYSTONES -

THE RU­INS of the former Ve­vay Inn have been de­mol­ished, pre­par­ing the site for a new devel­op­ment.

The pop­u­lar pub was de­stroyed in a fire in the early hours of April 14. The Ve­vay was com­pletely gut­ted and a num­ber of homes on O'Byrne Road had to be evac­u­ated that night.

Owner John Brady an­nounced re­cently that it is hoped that con­struc­tion on new premises will be­gin in March or April as long as all plan­ning per­mis­sions are re­ceived in time.

The re­mains of the build­ing were knocked down last week, nine months since the night of the fire.

Around 45 staff mem­bers were work­ing full or part time at the lo­cal pub at the time it burned down.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions car­ried out in the af­ter­math of the fire did not un­cover any ev­i­dence of foul play.

Lo­cals and man­age­ment alike are very keen to see a new Ve­vay Inn built on the site.

Ve­vay Inn is be­ing de­mol­ished to make way for the new devel­op­ment.
