Plans to demolish a popular pub near Croke Park in Dublin to build apartments in its place have been shelved.
Cork based company Discipula Developments sought to knock Quinn's Pub on the Lower Drumcondra Road.
In its place, it planned to build almost 100 apartments in a five storey mixed development.
The proposal, which received opposition from the local residents association, was rejected by Dublin City Council.
The pub, which was once owned by businessman Seán Quinn, was a popular meeting spot for GAA fans and is known to many supporters.
The Council said the development would affect the historic character of the area.
It also said the buildings would have an "unacceptable impact" on neighbouring properties, including blocking light from residents' homes.
