Toss, Does Blarney Woolen Mills still exist? I seem to remember that family having a falling out many years ago.

Rocker, I had lunch in that Cafe a couple of weeks ago and I have to say it was very nice.

out on foot around the town this morning. We came down the Noggin Hill and the top of the town is getting a grand bit of a lift. Painters doing up two shops. Those old Lees premises have a to let sign on them. Scotts is looking good. The flower shop at the entrance to the shopping centre is in full bloom ...all in all a very positive feel to the place. Spring is coming the heart of the town is lifting.

Great buzz in the town this morning. Good sales in Shaws (which is now nationwide...not almost nationwide!). Tierneys have marvellous reductions and the Bagle at Quigleys was to die for. We did sit and chat and sort out the world for a number of hours. Glad they weren't renting the seat by the hour!!

Except that lazy bas*tard who owns Harry's Cafe. What a shambles the place looks. I know I've said it before about TWO years ago and still not a lick of paint on that side wall.
Surely these renters have a responsibility to look after the premises?
