Ever wondered where the expression going for a jar originated? The Gravediggers pub next to Glasnevin Cemetery. The pub which dates from 1833 got its nickname thanks to its proximity to the famous Glasnevin graveyard, home to over 1 million Dubliner’s. The gravediggers of yore used to take their porter through the cemetery gates in ceramic jars, hence the term going for a jar.
