in 1974, Warren Zevon
played Irish music in this small Irish bar in a town on the Costa Brava. The bar was owned by a mercenary named David Lindell and together they wrote "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner." In 2003, Zevon performed this song on the Late Show with David Letterman
, his last performance before his death.

The Dubliner is still the small Irish bar it was in the 1970s. The small town of Sitges is a popular seaside tourist town and local bars like the Dubliner cater to foreign tourists looking for something familiar.
