Was McLeary's restaurant in Waterford City in 1956? If so, was it at the same location at Parade Quay? If the restaurant was not there in 1956, can someone tell me the name of an eatery in the city that year? Thank you, Richie

McLearys has only been around since 2011 when they opened on High Street. The Wine Vault was there before them and that opened in the late 80's I think. Before that, "proper" restaurants were few and far between in Waterford
