Today With Sean O Rourke Tuesday 18 March 2014
Closures, retirements and the disappearance of some well established businesses in the town of Dundalk has shocked many people in a town that has already seen huge losses in the retail trade. And more businesses will close in the next few weeks. Dundalk isn’t unusual. The effects of the downturn are being felt across the country
Keelin spoke with David FitzSimons of Retail Excellence Ireland and Dundalk jeweller Anne Campbell who is closing her shop after nearly twenty years in business.
Valerie Cox has been to Dundalk to talk to Brian O'Neill, the owner of the iconic RQ O'Neill store which opened in 1902 and which will close its doors after 112 years with Brian's imminent retirement.
