Vevay Inn demolished to prepare site for development
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.
