The Blue Door to be rechristended Brogans.

A Portlaoise pub with big connections to the Dublin football team will not be open for Hill 16 goes on tour to Main Street Portlaoise this weekend.

Injured star Bernard Brogran is involved with a company that is taking over The Blue Door, formerly Egan's, on Main St Portlaoise. 

It will be part of string of pubs which bear the Brogan brand. 

The Blue Door welcomed legions of Dubs last year when the All-Ireland Champions began their successful quest for the three-in-a-row.

This weekend, when Dublin take on Wicklow in O'Moore Park, doors will not be open on the pub due to extensive rennovations which began recently.

It is expected the pub will hope in June under local management but bearing the Brogan name over the door.

But Dublin fans need not worry as the other local pubs are busy preparing for their arrival on what's expecting to be a scorching and thirst quencing Sunday, May 27.

A new sign for a well known beer brand was being mounted outside Ramsbottom's.
