Help for Mary Os Fund

Dear Friends of Mary O’s, 

Firstly, we hope you are all safe and well.

Along with every other bar and restaurant in NYC, Mary O's has been economically devastated by COVID-19. While owner Mary O'Halloran's customers are missing her authentic, heartfelt "local hospitality" and she cannot for the time being host the birthday and anniversary parties and myriad school functions for which she's famous, Mary continues to do so much for the community—sewing masks, making meals for first responders, the list goes on. 

It goes without saying that the financial hit has been brutal, and (astronomical) rent still needs to be paid. Mary would never serve us again if she knew we were doing this, but we'd like to ask you to consider contributing to the Mary O's fund, so that when this is all over—who knows when?—there will be a Mary O's to return to. To have Mary build us a Guinness, celebrate our kid's graduation, gratefully tuck into a shepherd's pie or make a milestone birthday a night of festive fun. And maybe—finally!—win a round of Drag Queen Bingo. 

We hope to see you back at the bar soon. It won't be soon enough, but until then, please think about helping out and stay safe. 

Also, there is a website where you can order Mary's Irish Soda Bread Scones, and Shepherd's pie to be delivered to a Senior.

With love and thanks,
