Legendary Edgeworthstown bar and shop to close after 81 years

A popular bar and grocery in Edgeworthstown will close this weekend after being in operation for 81 years.

Quinn’s Corner House opened in 1936 and has been run by Philip Quinn for the past 59 years, but it’ll shut on Saturday when he retires at the age of 72.

People have been wishing Philip well, and he accepts he’ll miss his loyal customers:
