Generations of wit and wisdom have graced barstools, shared laughter and tears, wet whistles together,exchanged fact and fiction, and passed along the art of telling long and tall tales.

Paddy O’Quigley’s was founded in 1990, by Tom Intfen, with Family and Friends from his hometown ofAtchisonKS, as well as a local contingencyfrom theKansas Cityarea. “Quigley” was the maiden name of Tom’s mothers mother (aka ‘GranMa’ Josephine, from Co. Tipperary, Ireland, herself). The prefix “O” was added for a wee bit of flare and “Paddy” was just mythically licensed Irish Blarney. Blessed with the Luck of the Irish andthe support ofFamily and Friends anchored by his youngest sister “Sweet Judy Blue Eyes”,it all worked outand a neighborhood community built a new Irish tradition.

The current location at 151stand Nall, was added in May of 2011. Somewhat farther south inCountyJohnson, nestled in the middle of the IronHorse Centre, yet still in our beloved City ofLeawood.

As Irish Luck would have it, “The Brothers Carrigan”, were not only fromAtchison, butDan andTim Carriganwere cousins to the Intfen’s. With theAtchisontradition playing forward, the Family Tradition of Paddy O’Quigley’s was continuing on. Ironically, this Irish connection goes back even further…all theway back across the pond, toCountyTipperary. Sure enough’tis that the Long Long Way toTipperary linked up along with theYellow Brick Roadand led them alltoAtchisonKS. True Irish Providence at work…all here in the Land of Oz.
