These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
This evergreen shrub with its bright red berries, is now associated with Christmas decoration. Previously it was used by the Romans during the Saturnalia, the period of riotous celebrations extending over seven days, often ending in drunken debauchery. The Saturnalia was also celebrated in December. Between 1850 and 1876 see the BEERHOUSE, Longford. In 1850 it is called the Holly Tree, and in 1879 the Holly Bush near Dodd's Bridge.
