    A beloved Portland, Maine bar is closing its doors for good.

    The Brian Boru Public House, a fixture in the city’s Old Port area, announced early Friday morning on Facebook that it would permanently close at 1 a.m. Monday.

    Daniel Steele, the owner of the establishment, thanked patrons and the city for their support over the years.

    Founded in 1993, the pub was a popular place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
