The black and white photo was taken in the late 1800’s. My great grandfather E J Stack is standing with the 3 women, the woman on his left hand side is my great grand mother Bridget (nee O’Brien) from Graffa, in Ballylongford. They started business in The Arcade in 1887. E J Stacks father was James Stack and he had his business in the corner across the street where McKennas shop is. Our daughter Jennifer who owns Coco Ladies Boutique is the 5th generation running a business in The Arcade. Listowel.
