"We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your custom over the 14 years we have been here. I've made some good friends along the way and have loved being an important part of the local community.
"It's been a good craic with most, especially the locals (there's no other shopkeeper quite like me). However, health is wealth, so thanks again, best wishes to all and I'll be seeing ya."
