Frankly, it’s embarrassing that Sweny’s Pharmacy should have to contact us to about their need to fundraise to preserve and protect the 172-year-old chemist shop immortalised in James Joyce’s Ulysses.

How any government or tourist body could not simply sort it out beggars belief.

However, in the face of their rent doubling they are looking for public support.

This volunteer-run space cannot solely survive on the sale of “sweet lemony wax” soap and tourist donations.
