Commercial life of Castletownroche

Commercial life of Castletownroche in the late 19th Century and early 20th Century.

A brochure on the commercial life of the village was produced about 10 years ago chronicling the various businesses and social life of the village at the turn of the 20th century.  The depth of commercial life is truly astonishing for such a small village which then included harness makers, bakers, blacksmiths, publicans, farriers with all manner of entertainment on offer from circuses to dance bands to cinema.  The brochure is reproduced here with apologies for the quality of reproduction.
