Keenan's hotel bar and restaurant in the picturesque village of Tarmonbarry welcomed a very special 2019 St Patrick's weekend guest, U2 front man, the legendary Bono.

Bono posed for a photograph with Annette and Barry Keenan outside their award winning boutique hotel and restaurant, located on the Longford/Roscommon border on the banks of the River Shannon. 

Unfortunately, 2020 is a much different story for local pubs and restaurants owing to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
