Bryan Greene, The Founder of the Greene Group was born in 1882. He left Monague in Co Limerick in 1915, seven years before the foundation of the state.
At the age of 33 he opened Bryan Greene’s on William Street, Limerick , with his wife Anne, the daughter of a well- known Publican/Businessman Family (The Molloy’s) of Longford.
Bryan Greene’s was a traditional bar with lounge, had a thriving grocery business attached. In those days women were not permitted in a public house. Bryan Greene raised five children.
Bryan Greene, son of the Founder took over the running of the family business in the early 50’s. Three years later Bryan now in his 20’s with his business acumen and natural flair combined with hard work acquired “Smiling Bills” a public house now known as The Unicorn Pub/Restaurant – Limerick’s best known eatery/ public house on the south side of the City.
During this time Bryan met his wife Anne, a member of of Ireland’s biggest timber importer/ building providers McMahon’s. They purchased a 3 acre site and applied for permission to build their hotel in 1968. 12 Months later in April 1969 the Greenhills opened its door for business.
