Maria Galvin and her staff at No. 41 Main Street will celebrate their first five years of business in town with a unique event from 2pm to 4pm on Monday, August 22nd.

On the Monday morning of July 4th 2011 Maria Galvin opened her Galvin Optometrists at No. 41 Main Street, Castleisland.

The event on Monday week is designed to mark what Maria described as a small milestone in the greater scheme of things but a huge one for her business.

Shop and Rock Day

“We are having a ‘Shop and Rock Day’ here in Castleisland on Monday, August 22nd. A band called The Remedy will play a gig from 2pm-4pm in the practice. While the band will play on for the couple of hours, we are going to have a sale where all stock will have a huge 20% discount,” said Maria – explaining her novel idea.

After a few weeks of trading at her new premises back in 2011, Maria’s decided to officially launch her business and cousin, John Galvin, former Limerick inter-county footballer and St. Mary’s basketball star player, did the honours for her on August 6th. 2011.
