The Happy Ring House (1906)

This is an ad for The Happy Ring House from The Lepracaun. The Happy Ring House is still there at 3 Upper O'Connell Street, having been rebuilt after its destruction during the Easter Rising and indeed is a landmark of sorts. McDowell's originally traded out of a store in Mary Street but moved to O'Connell Street in 1902. The building is also notable for the fact it had one of the few residences on the street with Carmel Moran being the last person to live on the street, in a flat on the top floor of the building.
