Riley's Pour House in Carnegie opened to wailing bagpipes and a mini-parade down East Main Street just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

The new owners, Jim and Cheryl Riley, purchased the business that was previously known as Paddy’s Pour House late last year and renovated it for the grand opening Thursday afternoon. The building has been an Irish pub for the past 33 years.

On hand for the ceremonies to kick off the “Season of St. Patrick” were the Rev. Thomas O’Donnell, national chaplain of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, who gave the blessing; bagpiper John Walsh; members of the Order of Hibernians’ Sean MacBride Division No. 32; Allegheny County Councilman Michael Finnerty; ; Carnegie Mayor Jack Kobistek; and St. Patrick himself.

The Pour House of Carnegie, founded in 1979 has long been a signature pub of classic Irish food and fun. The Pour House still operates with a following as traditional as the Pub itself. The new owners renovated and revitalized the establishment into Riley’s Pour House, and hope it will become a gathering place of Irish tradition celebration, food and entertainment.
