A new chapter for Nenagh bookshop

Bookshop Proprietors John and Catherine Ryan.

One chapter ends, but a new one begins for The Bookshop in Nenagh this month.


Due to the sale of the premises, The Bookshop, Friar St, will close on Saturday March 16th. However, it is relocating and will re-open at 41 Pearse St on March 23rd.


Having briefly considered retirement, John and Catherine Ryan of The Bookshop, who have been booksellers in Nenagh for the past 22 years, have decided to continue their independent bookshop in Pearse St. They intend to maintain and hopefully expand their eclectic stock of books for adults and children. They believe the closure of an independent bookshop would be a cultural loss to the town.


Mr and Mrs Ryan have many happy memories of their time in Friar St. These include midnight launches of all the Harry Potter books with queues up the main street!; Sundry book launches, but especially those of multi award-winning local author Donal Ryan; the visit to The Bookshop that is part of the Christmas tradition for many people returning home; and, of course, all their good neighbours on the street.


As they look towards the future, Mr and Mrs Ryan said they are very grateful and appreciative to their loyal customer base, who have supported them over the the past 22 years, and they hope to have their continuing support for The Bookshop in Pearse St.
