Bill Purcell 1922.

New Carlow Business (Feb. 1922).

As can be seen in our advertising columns Mr William Purcell, late foreman at the Shamrock Works in Carlow has now opened a business of his own at 86 Tullow Street, Carlow. Mr Purcell was over 30 years foreman with Mr Doyle of the Shamrock Works and this experience coupled with good business ability and intelligence should gain him a large clientele.
