      It must be almost a year since Frawleys closed its doors!
      Does anyone know whats happening with it or who has bought it? someone told me Liam Carroll purchased it and is going to develop it then again it could just be a rumour?

      gav95, I havn’t any hard information on Frawleys, Ive been keeping an eye out for site notices myself. I don’t think anything has happened yet.

      That stretch of Thomas Street merits close watching. As far as I know, the left hand half of Frawley’s is a 5 bay, three storey, early 18th centure mansion, possibly built by a quaker called Fade, as of Fade Street. Behind the rendered facade should be a high quality red brick elevation with very thin cills, tripple key stone heads and rare end pillaster features.

      The right hand half looks 1930s. The rest of the streetscape towards St. Catherins Church includes a few formerly gabled houses, one of which (the Chinese shop) must have been double gabled.

      A lot of these houses are in rag order and look like they’re being preped for demolition. There are some good pictures on the Thomas St / James’s St. thread.

      I miss Frawleys, you could always get hoover bags and emergency funeral attire.

      Frawleys has re-opened. The name is different though. I was passing by on the bus yesterday, and the window was full of baby clothes. I heard someone mention that they are also selling extra large adult clothes.

      Didn’t Liam Carroll and Pascal Taggart buy it? They might have leased it but doubt if they’d sell it on

      Keith Duffy is Liam Carroll’s son?

      I was once like you are now, and I know that it’s not easy,
      To be calm when you’ve found something going on.
      But take your time, think a lot,
      Why, think of everything you’ve got.
      For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.
