William Street Facelift

This huge premises now looks resplendant.


Hospital shop

I posted a photo of this house a while back. Marie Shaw tells me that it used to be the home of the Horgan family. At one time they ran a shop from the front window. People visiting patients in the hospital could buy sweets or drinks to bring with them to the hospital.

Listowel Racecards have Changed a Lot

Junior Griffin showed me a card from 1964 side by side with one from last year.

The Races was a three day meeting in 1964 and the race card cost one shilling.
