Bessbrook still has some appearance of the ‘Model Village’, built in 1846-55 by John Grubb Richardson, a Quaker linen manufacturer.

In those days the relationship between the Richardsons and the townspeople was almost patriarchal, and the welfare of the community was the firm basis upon which the government of the town was operated.
Absolutely taboo were pawnshops and public houses, and for many a long year, there wasn’t even a police station.

The Cadbury Garden township of Bournville, near Birmingham, is modeled on Bessbrook.
There is still no pawnshop or pub there, and maybe that explains why the small village of Camlough, is only 2 km. away, which only consists of about a dozen houses, has 6 bars.

The finest of these must be The Danny Boy (called after the owner, Dan Gregory), redesigned in September 1989, but still retaining its original dark stained ceiling and bar area.

Slightly elevated snugs, with comfortable seating, make this a most attractive bar indeed.
