The Yellow House

The building itself, The Yellow House, dates back to the 18th Century.  It is believed that the first public house bearing the name "The Yellow House" was a thatch cottage standing on the present day Roman Catholic Church of Annunciation.  At the time of the 1798 and 1803 rebellions, it was owned by a man named Michael Eades and frequented by Arthur Devlin, brother of Anne Devlin, who was imprisoned for her part in the hiding of Robert Emmet in 1803.  Eades, a United Irishman and his family were suspected of republican sympathies and The Yellow Houe was destroyed in 1803.  A new Yellow House was built on the present site, by Mary Murphy and opened its doors for business in 1827
