Tribeton is on Merchants Road, in the building formerly known as McDonagh’s which dates from 1825 and features flourishes that reflect its art deco origins. In a previous life this building was the administration area for McDonagh’s timber yard across the street, where the Eyre Square Shopping Centre now stands, and the site of the beginning of the big fire of 1971. This inferno spread throughout a six acre block, causing an estimated £2 million worth of damage to 26 premises. Some of us will remember fondly going to McDonagh's paint and hardware to see the wire pulley system that took orders and receipts on a Willy-Wonkaesque journey overhead. It has had many reinventions since then, as a furniture and lighting store, a media centre for the Volvo Ocean Race, and an art gallery for the Galway International Arts Festival. Most recently it was a homeware store and woollens shop, stuffed full of tables and chairs, cushions, and jumpers.
