In Tullow Street near the Ritz Cinema was Slater's Bakery which later became the property of Crony's.

Unfortunately with the closure of Crotty's not that many years ago, Carlow lost its last Old Family Bakery.
Many a Crotty's "Brown Soda and Batch Loaf crossed the Irish Sea to be enjoyed by our exiles.
Crotty's cakes were equally as popular as their bread. There was only one problem with Crotty's Bakery - It was hard to decide what to buy as "You were always spoilt for choice!"
