Claddagh Pub may open county branch

The owners of Claddagh Pub are considering expanding into Baltimore County, but no definite plans have been made.

"It's in negotiations," said owner Vivian Clarke. "We're looking into it. We're not sure what or where."

Looney's Pub, Sean Bolan's and MaGerk's are all doing well in Bel Air.

I think a Claddagh Pub in Baltimore County would be a great business move.

I think moving to AA County would be nice! Right next door to my house...!!!

Wow. They must like you better than me. I've been calling them once a week.

awesome! less golf-gut yuppies in B-more!

Sam, depends on where they go. Look at what happened when Ropewalk went to Bel Air.

Drew, I don't know the whole story behind why Ropewalk sold their Bel Air branch. Do you? My buddy thought they were just trying to get a business going and flip it.

They were losing money in Bel Air, that's why Ropewalk closed there.
