This is McMullens
McMullens has something for everyone. A cosy atmosphere for a quiet pint with friends, a great variety of events for entertainment seekers and a dart board (also a pool table in Villach) for the ones who like a challenge. In both pubs we have a beautiful courtyard for a breath of fresh air with the atmosphere of a pub.
The McMullen Name and Crest
Have you been wondering what the story with the McMullens logo and the name of the pub is?
Well, here it goes:
Julian's surname is Mullen. So far so obvious. But Julian's other side of the family, his mother's side, are called McDonnell. Both names put together make up the name of the pub: McMullens.
Most family names in Ireland and Scotland have a family crest, or coat of arms, as it is also called. It was originally used as a means of identification for knights on the battlefield or at tournaments. Since their helmet and armour was covering them from head to toe the crest painted on the shield was the only way to identify them. The crescent moon in the Mullen crest signifies one who has been "enlightened and honoured by his sovereign" and the sword stands for government and justice. Every family with a family crest also has a family motto. The Mullen motto is
"To Live is to Conquer"
In Latin: "Vivere Sat Vincere",
In Gaelic: "Ni Beatha Go Bua" (pronounced: Knee, Bay-Ha, Guh, Boo-ah)
