Dundalk Woolworths – Store 331
91 – 93 Clanbrassil Street, Dundalk, Co. Louth, Ireland
Woolworths opened their sixth Irish store in Dundalk in 1928. It was on Clanbrassil Street. From these photos, it looks like there was a 1950s/60s makeover looking at the style of the building. The oversized text on the fascia makes an appearance here too.

With thanks to Stephen Nolan who sent me these photos. Store 331 in Dundalk closed in October 1984, and he tells me that as Dundalk is on the border between NI and RO, many of its customers would have transferred to the Newry store across the border after Kingfisher closed the ROI stores in 1984.
Today the building still exists, though with triangular peaks added at the top. It is the Clanbrassil Centre, which houses lots of smaller shops.
