A popular family run business in Mayo will close its doors for the final time next week.
The Connaught Inn on Spencer Street in Castlebar will close Monday next, with a leaving party planned for 9pm on Saturday night.
Manager Lee Walmsley, who ran premises for the past eight-and-a-half years, said she was stepping away for personal reasons.

The 18th century building offers modern facilities with various room types, all of which are en-suite, three fully furnished self-catering apartments on-site and a large car park to the rear.
However, the popular bar and restaurant won’t be closed for long as it was recently sold through Kevin Beirne Auctioneers.
