Does anyone remember McGoldricks Shop and its unique selling point (or unselling)!! Will anyone admit that they bought candyball apples from there?

As someone who had the misfortune to go into that shop, lets put it this way the modern day rules laid down by enviromental health would have had an encylopedia full with the state of that shop :D

One patron of McGoldricks was the ever fragrant Mary Lynch. Complete with pinny and shawl. Does anyone remember her?
