Changing Face Of Bewleys

 

Sir, - The recent "refurbishment" of Bewleys in Grafton Street is a shame. Gone is the charm and atmosphere enjoyed by generations of Dubliners and visitors alike. Is it too much to ask that the Westmoreland Street branch of this famous cafe, so wisely rescued by Garret FitzGerald in leaner times, be spared these "improvements"? - Yours, etc., Rory McGee,

Blackhall Court, Dublin 7.
