Oops. Never mind.


The MEMIC Group bought the building that housed Brian Boru. A few weeks ago they applied for a permit to have it torn down. Well, according to the Portland Press Herald, they will 'slow things down a little' and actually look at a proposal from someone who wants to move the little red brick building and save it from the wrecking ball.

They withdrew the application for a permit to tear down the building to make room for a parking lot for employees.

When news broke out that The MEMIC Group wanted to tear down Brian Boru, well, the thousands of us who had a drink or six there, were upset. That Irish pub had been a part of Portland for 26 years before closing down in 2019. There is a potential hero out there that wants to move the whole building. That gave MEMIC a chance to slow down...for at least a couple of weeks.

They are willing to listen to plans as long as there is the money to pay for the removal. But if the building isn't moved - they are back to getting a demolition permit. So everyone cross your fingers!
