Leverett & Frye, 56 Dublin Street, Carlow was an upmarket general grocery shop and bar, which began trading in the 1920s and continued to do so up to the early 1970s when it was converted into a bar.
 
It later became known as The Little Owl, first being run by returned emigrant Bridget Griffin and then by Bill Rooney.  It has since being bought by a Carlow Businessman and opted to revert to the original title when renaming the premises.

From "DUBLIN STREET IN THE RARE AULD TIMES". THE CARLOW ADVERTISER

"No.14 adjoining the Royal Hotel was formerly Patrick Bourke and Son  Victuallers and Wool Merchants. Bourkes were also agents for the Dublin and Wicklow Manure Co. Mr. Bourke emigrated to Perth, Australia. The business then passed to Jim Oliver" (This was the boy's father who died in 1930)

Maybe someone "down under" knows Mr. Bourke's descendants!
