It’s a sad day for all of those who enjoy a trip out to Capel Street’s most famous haunt.
Dublin’s answer to the Star of Bethlehem – the glowing Pantibar sign – is in fear of extinction, after the council decided that it detracted from the aesthetics of the area.
And so Panti Bliss – owner of the sign, and the city's most adored landlady – put out a call for help this afternoon in the form of this petition.
Despite the fact that it's barely hit the glowing cables of the information superhighway, it's already racked up a few thousand signatures – and is set to make quite a satisfying thump when it's dropped on the desk of An Bórd Planeála.
Taking two seconds out to attach your name to this list would really help out the fun-lovers and hard workers of Dublin’s vibrant nightlife scene – and not to mention, you’ll be on Ms Bliss’ good side.
Not that she has a bad one.
