DCU’s Old Bar in the Hub is to play host to a massive last session before it is knocked down later this year.
The event was set up by the SU and the DCU Alumni office and will take place on 21st May. Former students are encouraged to celebrate one final night in the venue which acted as a predecessor to the current Nubar.
The venue is to be knocked down as part of the Hub redevelopment which is due to take place in the summer.
Speaking about the event, Padraig McKeon of the DCU Alumni office said; “We’re holding the event because the Old Bar is a part of the history of DCU and a part of people’s memories of going here.”
An event page on Facebook for the event currently shows that over 950 people are going to the event with a further 1,500 interested.
Education officer James Donoghue said “the Old Bar walls hold a host of memories for those who have passed through, the last session post has has rekindled some of those fond memories and for those who come they will have a chance to walk down memory lane with distinct fondness.”
