Widely admired Sligo Draper John Mullaney
Short documentary about well-known and widely admired Sligo draper John Mullaney. John talks about the history of his store, the original Mullaney Brothers – his father Michael and his uncle Tom – who took over the store in the early 1900’s and developed it into one of Sligo’s most popular shops. John also shows his famous “booking register” dating from 1914, with the names and addresses of the many Sligo people who came to Mullaney Brothers to book their passage on ships to the New World. Sadly, John passed away just as the film was being completed.
