About Logues Shoes of Galway
OUR STORY SO FAR
Logues Shoes is Galway’s oldest family run shoe shop, Established by Frank and his wife Delia Logue on High street Circa 1912.
From small beginnings the business grew during very difficult times in Ireland and they were able to purchase Roche bar in Eyre Square in 1921 where we are still their today over 100 years on.
The Company now boasts it’s third generation of family who have a wealth of experience and together with their staff offer a service to all footwear needs.
In 1963 The people of Galway gave a big Céad míle fáilte to JFK to the city.
In 1969 the store doubled in size with the acquisition of what was known as Mc Cullaghs record store. Which consolidated Logues position as Galway’s leading family shoe shop.
During the Great fire of Galway in August 1971 the shop came very close to being destroyed, but for the brave efforts of Galway city and county fire men and a change of wind direction as part of the shop had suffered damage from the fire at the rear of the shop and a large number of our neighbours shops were destroyed.
(One nice story to come out of the event, concerns a group of Americans who were staying in the Great Southern Hotel at the time and Among them was a fireman who thought he might give the locals a hand. He expertly picked up a power hose and trained it on the blaze. One of the local firemen saw him and said, “Jeez, where did you come from?” “Boston, Massachusetts,” said your man. “Well, fair play to ya, the lads from Athenry haven’t arrived yet.”)
In 2004 we completed extensively refurbishments to the shop to which gave us a very bright and modern shop.
