Joe McHugh was legendary for his quick sense of humour.
An American visitor complained about there being no lock on the door of the gents lavatory,
"You know", he said, "we've never had anything stolen from there since I took over this pub".
Another time a crowd of tourists were sitting outside in front of the pub when a seagull flew over and deposited a package on the head of one of them. He went into the pub, told Joe what had happened and asked for a piece of toilet paper.
"I wouldn't bother trying to wipe that feller's arse", he said, "he's probably over the Cliffs by now".
