30. Geraghty’s Shop
David Collins

This building and the one next to it were built in the early nineteenth century as a Bianconi coach house. This was the home of Tom Ffrench member of the Connacht Rangers who was killed at Gallipoli in 1915. Geraghty’s which was established in 1946 sold a cap to John Wayne who used it in the film “The Quiet Man”.

  • The Connacht ranger killed in Galipoli in April in 2015 was John Ffrench and not Tom. He did have a connection to this shop. He was an uncle of Henry Geraghty but was a resident of Galway Road. May he rest in peace
