Re: Re: Dundalk
Got lost in Dundalk last night having taken the wrong exit off the M1, but it was a good opportunity to see some of the recent developments and older buildings in the town (though we didn’t see The Marshes!).
Quick question for Graham:
You mentioned above the Carroll’s buildings: “the old factory on Clanbrassil St, and its striking Edwardian office building there too.” We passed a building with a fairly elaborate shopfront and the Carroll’s cipher 🙂 over the door, which is now a shoe shop- was that the office building to which you refer? Part of the reason I ask is that I think the shoe-shop owner is related to me.
One other thing- we were in town for a gig in the Spirit Store, and I just wanted to say, what a great pub, venue and location. I knew it was on the quays, but had an image of urban quays a la Waterford or New Ross, not a working fishing quay with boats and mud flats. Should have brought my concertina for the sea shanties. 😉
