Door/11 – Portglenone

The Village Inn sits on the main road through Port Chluain Eoghain, or Portglenone in Northern Ireland.   Port Chluain Eoghain means “The Fort of Eoghan’s meadow” and it’s a small village of about 1100 souls.  DSCN9331 Portglenone sl 8x6

Behind this door there was a couple of beers, a cider … and a coffee.  It was a drizzly, drippy socked-in kind of day when made our pub stop.  Except I just wanted a cup of coffee.  After serving the drinks, I asked, “It might seem like a unlikely request, but is it possible to just get a cup of coffee.”  The barman’s response was that it would just be a cup of workman’s coffee, but I gratefully accepted.  When asked what I owed, he replied in that wonderful Irish lilt, “Oh, I couldn’t charge you for that, not a t’all, not a t’all.”
