Sawers' New Premises

The weather remained clement enough during my visit into town this morning. I spent an hour at the Linenhall Library, researching Dunne of Brittas, and Lyons-Montgomery of Belhavel. Mission well accomplished. 

Sawers have got new premises ~ beside the old shop ~ in College Street.

Sawers was established in 1895 and, in 1974, when they were located at the corner of Castle Street and Fountain Street, they described themselves thus: "Fishmongers, Poulterers, Game Dealers, Fruiterers, Provision Merchants and Butchers."

Today, I imagine they'd be happy enough to be termed a delicatessen.

The new shop is far more spacious; a good improvement on the old one.

I wish them well.
