The Pelly's comprised : Veronica, Frank, Maureen, Hyacinth and Michelle and their parents owned the Imperial Hotel. Sally Pelly, Frank's mother, was a sister of Josie Bourke's and when the Jenning's family bought the Imperial, Sally operated an insurance brokerage business from Bourke's garage on Ellison Street.
Now the name of the hotel on Castle Street was The Erris. I remember it was owned at one time by the Tierney's and was never opened as a hotel since it was sold in the sixties. Currently there are apartments there and a few shops on the ground floor.
