Very interesting. May I add the following: No. 44 – My grandfather James Sharkey established the Watchmaking and Jewellery business there in 1895 and it continued until 1959 when Patrick Quirke purchased the premises. My great aunt Margaret Nolan held No. 40 as a Drapery and Millinery shop from c. 1900 to c. 1945 after which my aunts May & Helen Sharkey ran it as a children’s clothes shop (c 1948 – 1953). My cousin Dermot Condon had a pharmacy at the corner into Mitchell St (57 – Widgers) from c. 1960 to about 1990). Premier Meats (No. 50) was Ronans and before that Halleys (I think) before becoming Premier M. No 45 was occupied by Jeremiah O Brien – Agent for Alfa Laval milking machines from c 1890s to c. 1955. I recall Paddy Hahessy’s Hairdresser as being in or about no. 49 not 45. I’m sure I could recall most of the shops on the other side from c. 1900 to 1960
