Irish pub to open in Rhode Island funeral home - SEE VIDEO

\"\"

You have heard of people dying for a drink, but Monahan Funeral Home in Rhode Island wants to bring that experience even closer to reality.

City officials in Providence have granted a liquor license in a funeral home for the first time ever.

The new pub will be known as McBride’s and will be open by St.Patrick’s Day.

The pub will be in the attached garage to the funeral home, which will be converted to the bar.

Other local bar owners are said not to be thrilled by the move which may affect their businesses as they had previously hosted Irish wakes.

But owner Mark Russell has promised that the pub will close earlier than other bars in the area.

No word on whether the faithful departed will partake of a parting glass on their way to the next world but no doubt many of the mourners will.
