Secondhand bookshop also selling a selection of new books.

I was warned prior to my visit that the shop might, or might not, be open. The reason given is that Henry Cairns who owns the business is occasionally arrested by the Garda for being an active member of the IRA. When I arrived the affable, bearded, Henry took it all as a joke although some of the titles on his shelves suggested that the Irish revolution is a must-read subject. We chatted while I looked over his holdings which included the 'Who's Who of the 1916 Uprising' (in two volumes) which did not quite grab my fancy.  Chris Harte 09.11.15
