Keeffe's Shop

Gerry Keeffe had a flour and meal shop here in the 1960/70s. Roches had it before that. There are two Roche families shown in the cillage of Tullylease in the 1911 census but only one family had a shop - that was Thomas, Hanna and Moses J. Roche.

Willie Shea farmed in Tullylease in 1911 and he also ran a shop here. His son  Batt Shea ran the shop in later years. Willie lived here with his mother, Mary, and his wife Hanna and two children in 1911. (link to 1911 census


P46 Main Street, Ardmore, Waterford

The current shop was built in 1935. There was no building on this site in the early 20th century although it had previously been occupied by what appears to have been a cottage (evident in 1840s OS map).

Roadside shop with basement

Mrs Garrys Shop, Newmarket, Cork

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.
