THE HISTORY OF WAXY O’CONNORS
The Waxy O’Connor’s name came out of an old tale from Ireland. There was a candle maker who had been given the nickname ”Waxy” because of the nature of his trade. The story goes that Waxy O’Connor lived in a flat above his candle shop. One night, there was a terrible raging fire in his shop but somehow he managed to escape without harm. When all the people in his town heard about what happened they couldn’t believe just how lucky he was. Everyone started interchanging the word lucky with Waxy. That is how the slang term for lucky became Waxy.
All seven of Waxys bars were built at Truwood Joinery Shop in County Monaghan, Ireland. Irish craftsmen used painstaking care and attention to every detail to give each bar an authentic Irish look and feel.
Waxy O’Connor’s opened its first location in Ft. Lauderdale, FL in 1997 followed by locations in San Antonio TX, South Beach Miami FL, Foxboro MA, Miami River FL, Lexington MA, Keene NH and Woburn, MA.
