The Irish Harp

Very little is known of the Irish Harp, except it stood on the junction of George Street and the Bull Ring.

There were a number of pubs operating on that section at the same time, including the White Hart and the George Inn. All were demolished during the extension to the Union Workhouse. 

Drunkenness - News Report

26 February 1898
Before the Llantrisant Bench on Friday last Robert Udy, a Llantrisant collier, was charged with being drunk and disorderly. According to the evidence of P.S. Davies and P.C. Lucas it appears that about 11.30pm the previous Saturday, the police saw the defendant in High Street, Llantrisant, very drunk. He was making use of most filthy and disgraceful language. When requested to go home he refused, and endeavoured to make the crowd which surrounded him "go for" the police. Possessing a little more common sense than a drunken person, the crowd refused to comply with his request, and several persons took him home afterwards. The defendant now alleged that the police were continually watching him as if he was a poacher. The Bench fined him 10s.
