But when I'm on the subject - "ye olde wooden shopfronts" are everywhere in the country towns ruining the streetscapes as theyre painted the wrong colours, are way too heavy looking in construction and generally lack individuality. Some towns such as Ardee in Louth have some amazing originals side by side with horrific new versions. Carrickmacross in Monaghan is just one fake after another.

There was a nice Black & Chrome place opposite Blackrock Clinic - was: It's been destroyed.
Anybody here ever seen 'Hick' Butcher Shop in DunLaoghaire? Marvellous! From the terrazzo style conglomerate wall tiles to the great logo over the window. I hope they don't wreck it in favour of the 'Plywood and MDF old style'.
Yep, I suppose I should plug my nostrils, go in and compliment them on a fine looking shop [ignoring all the dead things in the window] and tell them to look after it.
Just in case they don't know themselves.
Like a local shop? Go in and tell them.
