Collection: Our Own Place Photographic Project >> The Coombe [graphic]
|Main Creator:||O'Kelly, Gerard photographer|
With Biddy Mulligan the pride of the Coombe long vanished, it seems the last to leave is the Convent of the Holy Faith. Around the corner in St Patrick St was Kennedy's Bakery famous for its beautiful bread and fresh cream buns and cakes. Jammed in between the bakery and the retail shop was an old butchers shop called Macpether's. Here you could buy your meat, and slip in next door to buy your fresh loaf. Beside these shops was Doody's, who sold you groceries and fresh milk! Who needs supermakets?
