Nolan's Shop Edenderry
In Fr. Kearns Street (formerly Railway Street) was one of the best-known shops in Edenderry. It was owned by Michael Nolan ("Big Mick"), had petrol pumps and did late night trading for the benefit of the Cinema-population on their way home, especially to the Conoboro and Carbury areas. The bill-head says "Grocer and Provision Merchant" while "Motor Garage. Cars for Hire" also operated from the premises.
"Nolan's Hall" at the rear of the premises was available for hire and catered for a very wide spectrum of activities, from Wedding Receptions, Badminton, to the annual dinner of the Local Branch of the British Legion. [DOC]
