Leslie McKeague of Urcher, Bailieborough, who recently published  "Bailieborough, A Pictorial Past", requests help to identify, with certainty, photos 1 & 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, the third photo below shows The Royal Breffni in July 2009.

Can anyone say, with certainty, where photos 1 & 2 were taken?

Photo 3 - This is a photo of the shop at Tierworker, known as The Royal Breffni.

Are Photos 1 & 2 the predecessor of The Royal Breffni in the 1930s and 1940s? Or are they at Cormeen?
