So that particular gin-joint didn't want any Irish paper-hangers. Maybe they could just go paper Irish bars, instead.
Besides, the balance was to be paid in whiskey. It may have been in part, sound business decision to exclude Irishmen. *^)

There weren’t any Irish bars at that point - the immigration had just begun. You may wish to Google up Thomas Nast’s antiCatholic cartoons from the 1800s in order to view the level of antiCatholicism at that point.

(I would not believe in the Gospel, if the authority of the Catholic Church did not move me to do so.)
