The end of an era after 20 years of Limerick television excellence


CLARE Street’s Urlan TV, a household name for anyone in Limerick with a penchant for the small screen, will close its doors this summer after two decades in business.

To mark the sad event, the retailer is hosting a big sale on all items from its store and warehouses.

“We have always prided ourselves on stocking a huge range of electronic products, and on our expert knowledge,” said Aoife Gleeson.

“If a customer came in for an aerial, they always got some advice on how to assemble it and where to point it to. We looked after our customers when they had a remote eaten by the dog or a satellite dish that blew away. But since Covid, business has changed,” she admits.

“People are struggling with the cost of living and it’s no different for us. Our overheads have risen dramatically and it costs a lot to open the door before we ever make a sale. So, while it’s one of the toughest decisions we had to make, we feel that it’s a realistic one.”

“We want to thank each and every one of our customers for their support over the years. Please call in to say goodbye and, most importantly, for one last bargain.”

Urlan TV will close its doors for the final time on Monday July 31.
