The Quinn family (no relation of the present Quinns) owned the site of the present post office and had a bakery there. Much later on, Tommie Mooney started a bakery on their site near the strand; there was also a short lived bakery at Sun Lodge beside Tigaluinn.
Nowadays things are quite different. There is a hairdressing establishment in the village. There are two hotels, guesthouses and restaurants in a place, where once it was difficult for a visitor to get a simple cup of tea.
The building boom has extended to Ardmore and there is a plethora of new houses on the New Line, out the Youghal Road and in Whitingbay, so we have builders, electricians, plasterers, painters and most efficient tradesmen of every genre.
Three very busy joineries turn out excellent furniture. The Pottery on the Cliff is a source of great interest. There one can see the potters at work and also select from a most superior range of crafts from all over Ireland and solely of Irish manufacture.
