High noon at the Northy

The Northy pub has finally been rebuilt and has now reopened.

Publican, Tracey Hegarty, said the beer started flowing from midday on Friday, and so did her tears as she thanked the community for its support during the long re-build.

“We are extremely excited and over the moon with the response we have received from everyone,” she said.

“It really is high noon at the Northy and the support from the community has been overwhelming, amazing.

“We wanted to have a safe, welcoming place, a family place where people can come back and reminisce about the old days and how the pub used to be and celebrate the new times.

“We have great hospitality, great food and bevvies and it’s going to be a wonderful place to come to. Bourke’s been screaming out for this for a long time, and I know people thought it would never happen - but never say never.

“Good things come to people who work hard and we have a good team of staff who want to work,” Tracey said.

Opening night on Friday was a celebration before the Northy settles in. Tracey said the evening menu will be up and running in about two weeks and until then the menu was strictly barbecues after dark.

“We’re asking people to be patient,” she said. “We’ll have our bus up and running eventually, but at the moment there is so much happening, so just be patient.”
