Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop is the Irish Times Bookshop of the Year 2013!

It made me very, very happy to hear that Charlie Byrne’s has been voted the Irish Times Best Bookshop of the Year 2013.  I had the pleasure of working for Charlie while I studied at NUI Galway.  Working in the shop, I struck up some great friendships, as well as developed a healthy respect for the committed staff, and curious customers.


Knowing Charlie, I can imagine his discomfort at having to record this short clip.  He is a modest and hardworking gentleman with an aversion to the spotlight!

Well done Charlie, Vinny, Carmel, and all the team!  It is wonderful to see your hard work recognised.
