    1. Hi,

      I lived in 164 Lower Kimmage road, directly opposite the centra. This end of terrace cottage has a cul de sac next to it. There are 8-10 houses in here. That’s where the bakery was. All that remains is a silver pole on the main road.

      1. I also lived in 164 Lower Kimmage Road, until 1971. I remember that sign very well, and also Mrs. Twomey. She was a very kind woman, from Cork. I think she died in the late 50’s, I was a kid at the time.
        I remember more than one occasion hearing her indignantly declaring to a customer who asked for “a piece of gur cake”, that they were asking for “a fruit slice”

        1. Thanks Des – great memories! Interesting to hear that like myself, Mrs Twomey was from Cork!
