Hayes' Hotel in Thurles has been sold.
« on: September 17, 2014, 10:51:31 AM »
Just in case people weren't aware, the birthplace of our Association was sold at auction yesterday for 650k. There's been a lot of worry about what would happen if it was bought by someone with no concept of it's place in our history, and many people were calling for the GAA to buy it, and restore it or use it as a some sort of museum.

It looks like that won't be needed, as a lad from Fethard, in county Tipp, has bought it, and is intending on keeping it going as a renovated hotel, which is good news.

Jack Halley from Fethard purchased the birthplace of the GAA at the Allsop Space Auction in Dublin yesterday for 650,000, 150 thousand above the reserve price.

Halley, who's in his late 20's, has been living in London for several years working in the hospitality sector.

Speaking exclusively to Tipp FM, the son of well known Fethard-based veterinary surgeon John Halley said he plans to bring the iconic building back to its former glory.

Tipperary Independent TD Michael Lowry has welcomed the purchase of the hotel by Jack Halley describing him as young and energetic while locals in Thurles are happy that the hotel has been bought.

It is a kip and it was a kip twenty years ago. It should be flattened to the ground.

Was Lowry not looking to set up some sort of 'Las Vegas' type resort somewhere in Tipp a few years back?

Maybe there'll be a bit of lap dancing and what not in the new Hayes Hotel!!

Yeah, I think Lowry and some lad that owns the 'good time emporiums' or whatever they are called, the slot machines and things, were looking to build a big Vegas style resort in Two Mile Borris, near Horse and Jockey. I don't think they mentioned strip clubs and hookers though..

Not exactly sentimentality, like keeping an old pair of lucky jocks or something. It's an important part of the GAAs history, pre 2002.
