24 Apr 1872: Marriage of Denis Vaughan, Shopkeeper, Dublin, son of John Vaughan, Shopkeeper, to Susan O’Dwyer, Shopkeeper, Ennistymon, daughter of Patrick J. O’Dwyer, Shopkeeper, in Ennistymon chapel; witnesses: John J. O’Dwyer, Gretta O’Dwyer: https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/ ... 149900.pdfMr Vaughan of Ennistymon now at Upper Ormond Quay.
We have pleasure in transferring to our columns the following paragraph from the Irish Times of October 2nd; and are glad to find that a Clare man, a native of Ennistymon, has by his energy and business tact established himself in the esteem and confidence of his numerous friends and customers in the Metropolis; as evidenced by the very large trade done in both his flourishing establishments, Nos 10 and 16 Upper Ormond Quay, Dublin:
“Now that the approach of winter necessitates provision being made for warm clothing, the public will have an opportunity of inspecting some of the finest tweeds we have ever seen, at the establishment of Mr D. Vaughan, Upper Ormond Quay. The choicest specimens from Messrs. Mahony’s mill at Cork, will be found to vie in merit with the superb display of Scotch manufacture, and indeed the former is likely to be more readily selected. Visitors can inspect a fine stock of the new Mottled Bannockburn Tweed, now so much in use, and a large exhibition of West of England Beavers, and fancy naps suitable for gentlemen’s overcoats. Quality combined with very moderate prices, must obtain for Mr Vaughan a ready sale of his goods."
