John Fogarty R.I.P. 1930 a Fethard Shopkeeper at Burke Street Obviously a man before his time as he had his own printed paper bags. The scales of justice was printed on the front to show what an honest trader he was. Underneath he had the following rhyme “where are you going to my pretty maid/ I’m going to John Fogartys sir she said And what will you get there my pretty maid/ The best of good value sir she said” It was also remoured that he used to spit on his apples to get a good shine on them for his window display - proof that he was a believer in the old say ‘spit and polish’!
