History

Over 100 years in the making

100 years of history in Cork City

Kilgrews Cycles has enjoyed a long history in Cork City. First established over 100 years ago many a Corkonian will remember getting their first bike in Kilgrews, and many a Mother or Father will remember getting their first pram there. First opened for business in 19?? Kilgrews was a Bicycle and ??? shop, and as with many of the businesses of the day it did not specialise in just one thing, back in those days if a business wanted to survive it had to provide a larger range of services to the public(in general specialization is a relatively modern thing I'm sure you will agree) and Kilgrews was no different.
