LOL-I was thinking exactly the same thing myself.
The people who benefitted most from the Celtic Tiger we almost exclusively FF affiliated.
If you move the "center of commerce" from Main St to Hopkins Rd, what do you think is going to happen to the business on Main St
Years ago, when Supervalue was built. I think it was actually good for Linenhall St and Main St, as they both could be very easily accessed by coming through the alleyway at the side of Coadys. The people from down that end of town could park up and take care of their business without having to go through the town.
There's a huge difference in walking from the Supervalu car park to Elverys, than walking from Hopkins Rd Carpark to Elverys
