EAT in the
MIDSTATE

More than six months
after ling for Chapter 11
bankruptcy, Coakleys Irish
Restaurant and Pub in New
Cumberland has closed.
The Irish-themed Coak-
leys was among the most
recognized restaurants in
the Harrisburg area since
opening about 40 years ago.
It always was a popular
St. Patricks Day spot as
well as a gathering place for
those watching televised
sporting events. Diners
came for the diverse menu
of American and Irish
specialties ranging from
wings and burgers to boxty
(potato pancake) and sh
and chips.
A notice posted on the
restaurants front door
Thursday indicated the
closing was related to an
order by the U.S. Middle
District Court of Pennsyl-
vania.
We would like to thank
everybody for their pa-
tronage over the years, and
we hope you root for us to
return to business soon.
Please monitor Facebook
for updates on our status,
the note said.
Late last year, Coakleys
owner, Tim Hogg, said the
restaurant led for Chapter
11 bankruptcy. At the time,
Hogg said closing was not
an option.
He did not return phone
calls after the restaurant
closed Thursday.
Regular customer Kelly
Moran, 24, of New Cum-
berland said he learned of
the closing when he was at
the restaurant Wednesday
night. He said he was told
Coakleys employees found
out about the closing on
Wednesday.
