End of an era as Griffin’s Funeral Home is demolished Limerick Post by Mary Earls
GRIFFIN’S Funeral Home, which has traded from Lower Gerald Griffin Street for over a 100 years was dramatically toppled to the ground last week to make way for a new development in the historic street. But it was a poignant farewell for owner Gerry Griffin, who has had to leave the premises his family have been synonymous with since 1850.
Apartment blocks with shops on the ground floor and a car park are to replace the funeral home.
The main contract work is being carried out by Spicefield Developments and WISE Construction Limerick Ltd, who employed O’Kelly Bros, Ballingarry as their demolitions subcontractor. The structural demolitions were carried out over two and a half days, from June 21 to 23.
