Frank O'Dowd's life spanned almost 3 different centuries. Born in County Sligo, Frank O'Dowd is the owners' grandfather. He was a very colorful character, a beer and whiskey connoisseur, and an avid golfer late into his nineties.
There was no better way to celebrate Frank O'Dowd's life than to name the Pub in his honor. Available at the Pub is Frank O'Dowd's Ale, a special brew.
Next time you visit Galena, stop by Frank O'Dowd's Pub and know you are in the best of company. For it's a part of Irish culture to treasure the memories of those we hold nearest and dearest to our hearts.
