“A Glimpse Behind The Shopfront”

Carlingford Lough Heritage Trust is organising an exhibition of some 40 photographs of shops and business glimpsed from the past that will be held in Carlingford Heritage Centre in October 2020.

For Heritage Week we have made a short video to illustrate a snapshot of the exhibition where we look at a typical successful merchant business in a small town, the local grocer and publican, O’Hares.
