Radium Beer Hall Blue Plaque - Heritage Portal - 2016

Opened as a tearoom by the Khalil [Kalil] family in 1929, the Radium pursued a double life as a shebeen illegally selling liquor to black customers. The bar counter was rescued from the demolished Ferreirastown Hotel, and it is believed that during the 1913 strike trade unionist Mary Fitzgerald delivered her speech to striking miners standing on its scarred surface.
