Furlongs Butchers, Wexford

A photograph of the recently-closed Furlong Family Butchers premises, which was situated in the Bullring. Unfortunately, the store was forced to close after the introduction of a nearby traffic management system made it difficult for shoppers to "stop by". The business was established in the 1600s, so it was sad to see such a well-known store close its doors. Fortunately, the business is still going, as there are other outlets in Whitemill, Clonard (The Butcher Block) and other parts of the county.
