AN IRISH WEBSITE has put together an interactive map of Dublin’s pubs of 1969, based on a book by pub historian Roy Bulson.

The map, created by shows where in Dublin the pubs were and gives details of what is located there now.

Many of the pubs still exist, some have made way for office blocks or apartments or have changed their names.

Ireland’s oldest pub, the Brazen Head is still going strong but music venue Whelans on Wexford Street was called Bourkes in 1969 and gay bar The George used to be The Carrigan Lounge.

Doyles, popular with students due to its proximity to Trinity College, used to be The College Mooney and its patrons back in the day were described as “a very cosmopolitan clientelle”.
