Clare Castle promises to come to something as a trading town. At present there are no less than fourteen crafts of various descriptions crowded along the Quay.
Surely, I thought, Clare Castle was already “something”, but, in this chapter, Eric Shaw explains that the coming of the railway to Clare Castle in 1859 caused a drop in business and a decline to the port of Clare: https://clarecastleballyea.clareheritag ... 1-2014.pdf
