Dunnes in Crumlin Shopping Centre is a fairly depressing spot.

Is the Tesco in that crappy little shopping centre in Roscrea closed since the big new Tesco opened? That was without doubt THE most depressing supermarket in Ireland.

Although to be fair, Roscrea in general is depressing so it just fitted in with the general air of the place. As someone described to me before, Roscrea is both figuratively and literally a hole- all roads out of it go uphill.

Dunnes Stores in Portlaoise is particularly grim.
