Nenagh Thread

Whats up guys and gals... thought I'd get al ole thread going on our fair town of Nenagh.

Discussions are open, from local business's, events etc, to goings on in Maximus whatever your heart desires.


I'll get the ball rolling, are there any gigs or good bands due to play in the near future? There's a lot of hype behind the band Rafiki but haven't personally seen them. They good?

Dave

Good man, Dave.

There was a Nenagh sticky here some time ago but I don't think anyone ever posted to it.

Maximus? Easy Street was where it was at back in the day....

Anyone got contact details for booking the indoor facility in Lisboney for 5-a-side?

Dave,

Thanks for offering to get that number.
Got the contact details for the indoor pitch in the meantime.
Did a search for "Nenagh Arena" - throws up a Facebook page.

Mulqueen's Supermarket & Off-Licence has ceased trading after 40 years in business.
First Super Valu, then O'Connor's and now this......

Yes it's a sad state of affairs. People should try spend with local retailers. Although it is very hard to compete with Tesco prices... catch 22

I worked across the road from Mulqueen's for the past year.
my impression from day one was it was about to close any minute.
The shelves were half full, and we returned milk so many times for being gone off but in date.

I live only up the road from Mulqueens, was very handy to nip down to pick up milk or bread but you're right, the prices were bit high and they had little to no stock most of the time. Tis a pity, where will be next? :/

so now nenagh now only has a tesco, lidl & dunnes despite been a bigger town dan d likes of thurles and carrick. clonmel is littered with supermarkets with 2 dunnes, tesco, supervalu, m&s, crunch, iceland and a few londis's too..surely for a town of its size this isnt fair competition and the chamber of commerce should be supporting these family stores but i suppose its all too late now

The chamber of commerce kept ALDI out of Streame and cost all the jobs in Super Valu as well.

It was well known that Super valu were willing to try to continue as they felt Aldi would have brought people to Streame and aldi have a limited range.

So the chamber cost Nenagh about 50 jobs in Aldi and 50 more in Super valu,

As well as denying CHOICE to the people of Nenagh.

The chamber doesnt serve nenagh it serves its own greedy members.

Made up of gob*****s mostly.
