    This Bar needs to shut down!! One problem after another the Pittsburgh Police Department and the city need to step in and lock the doors!!

    1. Concered about your children! says:

      The Shamrock needs shut down? I would like to know what the shamrock has to do with this? Other than the fact that it happened there. You need to be shuttin down the parents of these young boys and girls runnin around the “hood” tryna be gangster. Instead of allowing them to run the streets be a parent and stop with the whole “my kid is 18 and grown they know the concequences” act. If you as thier parent arent there to guide them through life then the only place they feel they have is the streets. Don’t blame an establishment blame yourselves. Your children are killing each other and they think its OK. Most these kids have no clue what they are doin they are just “makin it”. Parents need sto get off they lazy bums and start knockin some sense into these kids. They are YOUR streets so clean them up and stop complaining!

      I agree with Concerned…That place needs to shut it’s doors for good! How come the other establishments on Western don’t have the problems that the Shamrock does? The management and owners have allowed the Shamrock to turn to $hit.!!

  4. Century says:

    I agree with concerned and fed up. The place has been a nuisane bar for ages. The politicians need to shut it down instead of complaiing about it.

  5. Joe Malicko says:

    I agree. Western Avenue has no other problems. It is located in the nice historic neighborhood of Allegheny West. And the only problem is the shamrock bar, and something needs to be done about it.
