On reflection the street signs are significant to the text. 'One Way' (upwards) and 'No entry'.

Costigan’s was in existence before the railway arrived here in 1848.

Rhyl Life April 2009 reveals that the pub was the home of Mr James Costigan, an Irishman who secured a licence to sell alcohol. Eventually it became ‘Railway Refreshment Rooms’ where Rhyl's first Catholic Masses were held before the town had its own Catholic church.

In 1951 the building became ‘The Mermaid’ pub. Later on, after reverting to the name Costigan’s, it was a home of Rhyl Folk Club
for a while before becoming derelict.
