    Anyone remember the record shop upstairs in Shaws?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,412 ✭✭✭ Road-Hog


    Here's a couple to add to the list:

    PC/Computer/Video Shop where on streed where happy garden/purcell property is now think it was called the 'chip shop' around (Mid 1980's)

    Pre city square days when you could drive through the covered section of city square now there was a bakery there called 'Golden Crumb' (I think) and 'Finns Camera' shop was also on this street (Peter's street???)

    The 'city arms' before City Square was built and the awful sloping car park that was also on the site of city square with those really low railings.

    Country Pork on John's street

    The shop that used was on site of pulpit/preachers, name escapes me

    I do. They used to also occasionally sell computer games. I got Turrican for the Commodore 64 in there sometime around 1992.

    ... and they seemed to have a permanent closing down sale if I remember correctly. Must have been there until at least the mid nineties.

    Teleport computer shop in Georges Court, think it was run by an English family if I remember correctly!

    Remember when The Infirmary was a hospital.

    When the taxi rank was outside Pennys and you could drive right up through town.

    No pedestrian areas, you could drive up Georges st by T&H's, up through the town and down Michael st.

    Remember the joke, "What were Nelson Mandela's first words when he got released from prison?" - "Is that sale still on in Peter France's!!!" :pac:

    From what I remember there was always a sale on in there

    Getting the old Kenelley's Yorkshire double decker over to bingo.

    The slots in the Savoy and the could of smoke from the 'biddys' smoking through bingo, (like my gran!)

    The wafers they sold at half time and chips from 'Strips' afterwards or if we were good we'd get a cod from Walkers.

    Great thread, brings me right back to the good ol days.
    Miss The Olde Rogue and Bobby Magee's, back when pubs were pubs, cheap beer, good music. Also miss the bike show in Kilmeaden every summer, good atmosphere around the town that wkend, used to love sitting outside the rogue with a cool bottle of cider on a scorcher of a day. The Old Ground was good for bands and Rorkes on the way to Breens for refueling!
