We’re very saddened to hear of the passing of Frank Quinn, who with his brother Mick owned and operated Toner’s on Baggot Street, The 51 Haddington Road, The Lansdowne Hotel and The Waterloo, both on Baggot Street.
While you may not personally know Frank, you’ve likely drank in one of his pubs, which are some of the best known and well attended in the city. Frank and Mick took over Toner’s in 1987 and have overseen the protection and expansion of this fine Dublin drinking establishment.
Here follows the death notice:
