447

There could be good news for the future of Hayes Hotel as the birthplace of the GAA upon reports that hurler Lar Corbett, international boxer Matthew Macklin and local businessman Kevin Coppinger have expressed their interest in the landmark building.

Hayes Hotel went into receivership last April and there have since been calls from a number of quarters for it to be saved due to its heritage.

It has now emerged in a report by Jackie Cahill that the three men are interested in acquiring the building and a bid could be expected as early as next week
