ST PATRICK’S DAY has come to Nerja and the Euro Weekly News was on hand for the celebrations.

Starting off at Murphy’s Clubhouse Bar, the EWN was there to celebrate a St Patrick’s Day event through the bars of Nerja to raise money for food bank Nerja Solidaria.
The event, which sees revellers paying €5 for a t-shirt and free Guinness, took in many of Nerja’s most popular bars.

Beginning at Murphy’s Clubhouse Bar, the event carried on the bar KMS, before making its way to The Beer Garden and finally Fitzgerald’s.
Proceeds from the celebrations will go Nerja Solidaria.
The EWN caught up with owners of Murphy’s, Alex Casey and Charlotte Buckley, where the event was in full swing, festooned with decorations and with plenty of Guinness on tap for the bar’s customers, many of whom had come out dressed for the occasion.

Speaking about the charity event, Alex, who is in his second year of owning the bar, told the EWN: “It’s nice to see people feel the atmosphere again after such a long time in the pandemic.
“Slowly but surely the customers are coming back and we’re hoping the summer will be back as busy as ever.”
Charlotte said: “This is the community’s centre and it’s nice to see people enjoying themselves.”

Later, the EWN caught up with The Beer Garden. Owned by Joe O’Loughlin, the pub was also popular with those celebrating, with plenty of Guinness hats t-shirts and Irish-themes costumes on display.
Speaking to the EWN, Joe said: “It’s a great event. We’re raising money for charity and helping people to celebrate at the same time.
“There’s been a great turnout and everyone is having fun so the event’s been a success.”
