Note from  Glyn Hardwick; my uncle Tommy Brennan used to drive the van in the early 1960's before he became a driver for Carpenters funeral home

Note from: Rosaleen Kearns <> The White Star Laundry was located at the bottom of Montgomery Street on the corner of the Barrow Track.  It was beside Joshua Watson Grain Stores.  They also had two depots in Tullow Street, one opposite the Allied  Irish Bank,  (in the present Med Bar premises) and the other one further down the street opposite Haddens (it is now occupied by Sean Swan Electrical.)  It became Celtic Laundry,  then Celtic Linen in the late 1970s I believe.   It was owned by a Wexford family called Scallan.  Their head office was at Drinagh in Wexford which was run by Sean Scallan.  His sister Alice Scallan ran the Carlow Laundry.  She lived in Centaur Street. The factory in Montgomery Street was closed a number of years ago, and operations moved to the Wexford plant.  There was meant to have been a large scale hotel, shopping centre and apartments built there but the site remains derelict.
