Leslie McKeague of Urcher, Bailieborough, who recently published his magnificent book - Bailieborough, A Pictorial Past - provides photos 1 and 2 below. They are probably photos of the shop at Tierworker crossroads when it was owned by Finegan in the 1940s. However, someone has suggested that it may be a shop at Cormeen. Can anyone provide the definitive answer?

For comparison, photo 3 below shows The Royal Breffni in July 2009. The Royal Breffni is an enlarged version of the Finegan Shop.

Can the former owner of The Royal Breffni, Brendan Reilly, confirm if photos 1 and 2 do, in fact, show Finegan's at Tierworker?
