Best of luck to O'Connors in Limerick in opening their new shop. In these hard times it's great to hear some positive news.

Let us know how they get on.

Best of luck to them!
I have to admit, when I saw the thread title, I thought it would be a limrick about camera shops. Wasn't thinking about your town.

Here is a limrick about a camera shop in Limerick

O'Connors is a new camera shop,
It's in Limerick if you want to stop,
For new film to buy,
Or pop in to say "Hi",
And the staff are the cream of the crop.

(I'm sure some else can do better than me)

Des,

I saw the video on Wet-Plate made by the guys in Limerick and it's brilliant.

I'll definitely drop into them over the next while to see what stock they are carrying etc.

Great stuff,
George.

I am flattered :) and an other funny coincidence is my surname is O'Connor and I own a camera shop/minilab in Sligo, but it's not named O'Connors!!

I buy postal stamps and coins from England for my collection. They take less than 2 pounds for a package and this is the least expensive deal I have ever seen in all the World. They are extremelly professional people . I am happy to buy from England.

Other story is different , I read many books on whiskey production and learned Ireland is the inventor. But I learned that British Monarchy taxed whiskey production for 400 years , greater than Scotland and Ireland had never been a major whiskey producer even Today. And Gaelic is too close to Turkish and many words find their Gaelic meaning when read with Turkish etymology. If you know Mid Asian or Siberian Turkish , you can decipher many Norse languages and the relatives also .

So I have sympathy for Ireland and want to support this company if they have a website and ssl payment option.
