The catalogue tells us that this is the Strand Hotel, Omeath, Co. Louth (without much evidence supporting the Hotel portion). The one thing for sure is that there is a lot of beer for sale on both sides of the road. The sign post is interesting with the old gaelic type. It is a great shame that the newspaper headlines beside the door on the left is not in focus, dating this photo may be difficult.
