Demolition of Brian Boru Building

The Press Herald reports that new owners have applied for a demolition permit to tear down the former Brian Boru building.

Though closed for nearly two years, Portland’s Brian Boru pub still stands out like an oasis amid the asphalt and dirt parking lots at the western edge of the Old Port. But like a desert mirage, the bright red brick building that once teemed with laughter, libations and live music may soon become a memory.
