'Yesterday don't matter when it's gone'
Ruby Tuesday - Jagger & Richards
My memories of my seventies childhood include family religious outing on Sunday mornings. For whatever reason, we were sometimes late and this meant 12.15 mass at St. Mary’s on Pope’s Quay. The route home then was past Inchigeela Dairy which often was a stopping point for the papers or some treats.
In the late eighties, I started working not too far away and Inchigeela Dairy was the local shop. On a few occasions, I would have been delegated to call up to Mr. Creedon for the provisions.
When I was in Ennis recently, I noted plastered signage on a building that was, but no longer is, a shop. Of late, I have noted old shop premises by North Cathedral and by Tower St and had thought of taking photographs of these buildings for another section of the website – but had not yet put that thought into action.
This weekend, I was walking down Coburg St and Devonshire St and noted that the namesign on Inchigeela Dairiy had been painted over. The shop has been closed for many years but the signage was a reminder of my yesterdays which do matter – to me anyway.
I have spotted a photograph on Pana-Vision by Donal O’Caoimh and GoogleMaps with the old signage to overcome any failings that may arise with the memory.
