Despite the miserable weather today I had a chance to nip up to Gorey for a long promised visit to the premises of South East Salvage – a short distance out of town off the Courtown Road. A well stocked salvage yard with all the usual bricks, slates, timber, garden seats, pumps etc. and two showrooms of smalls, furniture and various other collectables but sadly no must-haves!
A display of reproduction railway signs adorned the office. Who is making these? Some are very crude and utterly worthless like this Dundalk, Newry & Greenore Railway sign pictured above – priced at €40 – the authentic version would be worth nearer to €1,500.
Apart from looking as fresh as a newly laid egg, another giveaway is that the Secretary’s name is from the Great Southern & Western Railway and NOT the Dundalk, Newry & Greenore Railway!
Verdict: Well worth a visit.
