Coleman’s shop, Ballynakilla[8]

Michael and Christina Coleman ran a shop from their house in Ballynakilla from 1975-1982. It was open 7 days a week from 7.30 a.m. to 11 p.m. They sold bread, milk, ice-cream, minerals (red lemonade at 13 pence a bottle) and cigarettes. They also sold bicycle tyres and tubes.

The regulars would knock on the door at 7.30 a.m. particularly from Toghermore House for their cigarettes such as Woodbine, Sweet Afton, and Players etc. Chrissie Coleman used to regularly bake her own speciality, apple sponges, which were very popular.
