A pickup truck backed through the front entrance of Shillelagh on the first day of the new year, where several people were eating breakfast.
The restaurant at Fourth Street and Temple is connected to O'Connell's bar, one of the city's oldest and best known bars. No injuries were reported.
Long Beach resident Robert Flores, who was having breakfast in the restaurant with a friend, picked up his iPhone camera and took these photos of the wreckage.
The pick-up truck jumped the curb and slammed into the front of the restaurant and demolished the front entrance, according to witnesses. No one was reportedly sitting near the front of the establishment.
