The Bad Ass Cafe in Temple Bar (Dublin) by William Murphy Via Flickr: Did you know that Sinead O'Connor used to work as a waitress in Bad Ass Cafe many years ago? The Bad Ass Café was established in 1983 and soon became a landmark establishment in Dublin city centre. It has played host to a long and colourful history such as almost burning to the ground, being listed on the ‘Rock ‘N’ Stroll Tour’ of Dublin. Sometime in 2011 it closed but it has since been reopened under new management.
