One of County Sligo’s most iconic pubs and restaurants is for sale.

It’s Killoran’s Traditional Restaurant and Bar in Tubbercurry, which has been an integral part of the social life of the north west for more than 60 years.

Selling Agent Roger McCarrick of REA McCarrick and Sons, says tht as the Covid pandemic eases, people in Tubbercurry are eager to see Killorans thriving again.
