Kevin Gildeas Brilliant Bookshop, Dun Laogahire, County Dublin
Via Irish Times Letters:
In response to Frank McNally’s mention (An Irishman’s Diary, December 5th) of the mini-furore regarding the lack of an apostrophe in the sign above my shop – Kevin Gildeas Brilliant Bookshop – I would like to point out that it is a matter of choosing aesthetics over grammar. An apostrophe would destroy the line of the words.
The shop will be open, to grammarians and others, from tomorrow, December 10th. A 46A (yes, you can get that bus there) will take you to Lower George’s Street, Dún Laoghaire. –
