This shop is steeped in history, located on the site of the Church of St.John of Jerusalem. This church was inhabited by the Jesuits until Cromwellian forces took it over in 1650. One possible explanation for why this spot is called the Four Corners is that this area was previously the only crossroads in Galway.The shop has been owned by Powell and Sons since 1918, when the family began selling snuff from the premises. They now specialize in traditional Irish and classical music, selling a varied range of musical instruments, tapes and CDs. Upstairs there are various painting implements such as paintbrushes, oils and charcoal.
This centrally located shop has a vast range of Irish hand-knits as well as machine-knit sweaters, cardigans and scarves. However, it specialises in the hand-knit Aran range of knitwear. This style of hand knitting goes back hundreds of years, and it is said that Daniel was depicted in the Book of Kells wearing an Aran sweater and a matching pair of socks. Traditionally, women on the Aran Islands spun and hand-knitted the pure wool. Different symbolic stitches were handed down over the generations; and diamond, cable and honeycomb stitches are still used today.
