    As I understand it, 'continuation' is a criteria. The structure must have been continuously used as a public house in order to be recognised, whether licensed or not.

    Exactly. It also has to still exist. Previous pubs that have been torn down or re-purposed aren't the oldest EXISTING pubs.

    Yes. I used to frequent a shibeen in New Ross. The owner of the day claimed it to be the oldest 'public house' in Wexford. That was not true. Although the building was certainly old, it closed for a long period in the mid-19th Century, and moved to a room in an adjoining building of roughly the same age in the early 1920s. The only thing that was constant was his family's ownership of the buildings.
