Frances St. the hub of commercial activity in Kilrush

These photographs clearly illustrate the commercial activity associated with Frances Street in the mid to late nineteenth century. Apart from residential occupancy, the street was home to banks, hotels, mills and shops of all descriptions. Also housed on the street were doctors, solicitors and priests. The street originally developed west from Moore Street and the Market Square. It led towards Kilrush Creek.
