Mrs Garrys Shop, Newmarket, Cork

Groups audience: 

Recorded by Fidelma Mullane in 2013 this is a split-level with basement, flat-roof structure with door from basement on to the field to rear.  Raymond O’Sullivan considers that the shop was probably built circa 1950 and he recalled delivering bread there over 60 years ago. It served the cinema located across the road as well as selling some groceries.  It is now painted in the local Newmarket GAA colours.

Accompanying audio by Raymond O'Sullivan tells us a little of the shop's history and its link with the Casino cinema across the road.
