Another Dublin pub has shut its doors, and we're beyond upset about this tragedy. It seems like so many gems of the capital city have been forced to close, and the latest one is hitting Dubliners hard.
The Hill pub of Ranelagh has announced it will "close with immediate effect" due to "circumstances beyond our control."
The venue released a short statement on Twitter, with customers showing their support:
"We would like to thank all of our wonderful customers over the last few years, you have all been amazing," the pub wrote.
Fans and visitors of the location made sure to show the pub love in the comments, wishing the pub luck with any other business ventures they attempt.
Independent businesses and nightlife spots have been noticeably struggling to stay open in the city centre, with rent costs sky high and corporations reducing the market to a monopoly.
We wish the best of luck in the future to The Hill, hopefully it can reopen in a few years for some fresh pints.

Ireland is mad for gin at the moment, as we can clearly see from the amount of gin events and festivals lined up this summer.
The first Ranelagh Gin Festival was such a smash success last month that they're brining it back for round two.
If you're feeling like a G&T on June 1, you can head to the second rendition of Ranelagh Gin Festival.
As well as being located in one of Dublin's most pleasant areas, the G&Ts at this festival are far from overpriced, at a very reasonable €6.00.
Hosted by The Hill pub, there are a number of delicious concoctions to try.
You can check out the event details here, and we'll see you there, vat of gin in hand.
A woman on her bicycle and an articulated lorry collided near Ranelagh in Dublin a little after 12 noon today; the cyclist is now in at St James's Hospital with serious leg injuries.
A large Garda presence remained for some time at the scene at Grand Parade Bridge, which was for several hours cornered off and preserved so that a technical and forensic examination could take place. The road has since been reopened to traffic.
It is believed that the 39-year-old woman was conscious when paramedics and the Dublin Fire Brigade arrived to treat her.
Her bike was completely crushed in the incident.
Although her injuries are serious, they are not thought to be life-threatening.
An Garda Síochána this evening told SHEmazing in a statement: "Shortly after midday a female cyclist aged in her late 30s was seriously injured when she was struck by an articulated lorry at the junction of Grand Parade and Ranelagh Road.
"The cyclist was treated at the scene by emergency services personnel and removed by ambulance to St James’s Hospital. Her injuries are understood to be serious."
Thankfully, no one else – including the driver of the lorry – was injured.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Donnybrook Garda Station 01 666 9200 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.

Clear your schedule for this Saturday, because it's going to involved a LOT of Prosecco.
Bottomless brunch – a brunch menu which includes unlimited cocktails for a set price – has become something of an institution in New York and London, and it's slowly trickling through to Dublin too.
Now, The Exchequer Wine Bar in Ranelagh has launched Dublin's first Bottomless Prosecco Brunch, every Saturday from 12 – 4pm.
Along with the purchase of one brunch item from their menu, you'll pay €15 for bottomless Prosecco refills during your meal. The catch? Um, there isn't one, unless you count the Sunday hangover you're bound to have.
Given that a glass of Prosecco would normally set you back €6.90 a pop, it's definitely value for money if you plan on indulging.
And if you're among the first 20 to book for this weekend, you'll get your Prosecco refills for just €10.
The Exchequer isn't the first place in Dublin to offer a Bottomless Brunch – Beckett & Bull in Rathgar offers a similar set-up with their Bottomless Mimosa Brunch – but there's something about endless Prosecco refills that has us VERY excited indeed.
