PV Fallon's in Longford town is to re-open, it has emerged

Landmark pub and restaurant PV's in Longford town has been sold and is to re-open under new owners, the Leader can reveal.

Radar Investments Ltd, a County Cavan based company, are the new owners of the iconic Ballymahon Street venue.

The establishment went into receivership five years ago with the loss of 20 jobs.

Despite a number of attempts to secure a new owner for the premises, it has remained closed ever since.

However, at a sitting of Longford District Court yesterday (Tuesday) an ad-interim transfer of a licence was granted to Philip King, one of two directors aligned to Radar Investments Ltd.

In granting the licence, Judge Hughes noted the historic importance that was attached to PVs as he asked Mr King what his plans were for the business.

"There's a good bit of work to be done," he replied.

"I am not sure if it will be a late bar, we will try and get people in first and do some food."
