In the 70's and 80's there was a great second hand record shop in the Merrion Market (underneath the Merrion Centre) called Gerol's (or Gerrol's - can't quite remember). Does anyone remember this?

( Feb 29,2015)I remember it well. It was close to the Merrion Market exit, outside of which was the entrance to the Merrion Hotel. I bought endless singles and albums from Gerol's. He seemed to know his stuff in terms of what was valuable and what was 'tat'. He seemed always to have a younger mate in the store with him on my Saturday morning visits. I was a regular at the nearby bowling alley at the time and couldn't forgo a visit to Gerol's to see if anything new of interest had found its way onto the racks. Comment:MARTIN HANDLEY.

Name Peter Higginbotham Comment: Gerol's was run by two guys (brothers?) Gerald and Roland. I got some great stuff from there including a white-label demo pressing of Beatles' Please Please Me for a quid! Happy days. (April 27, 2017)
