Hynes Draper Shop

TullaClare

Tulla GAA Clubhouse (formerly Tulla Business Centre)

The Hynes Family ran a Draper's business in this location (blue front) at the corner of the Convent Lane in the 1800s and into the 1900s.  After the family died in the 1920s, the shop was closed and the Secondary School later took over the building until the 1960s.  The Tulla Business Centre was a Shannon Development initiative whereby small business could let units in the development.  Recently, this building was sold and is now leased to Tulla GAA as their clubhouse. 

The Hynes ran a draper shop in the far right shop with a small yard and storage area to the back and side.  The building is slightly set back from the houses to the left.  John Hynes was listed as the occupier of the house, shop and yards from Eliza Browne for many years.  The building was then transferred to Joseph Hynes and Mary Hynes and subsequently transferred to Patrick Hynes after their deaths.  Stephen Minogue became the occupier and it was later transferred for the purposes of a secondary school.  There are beautiful terracotta floors in the entrance way (to the side).
