Bray People - - NEWS -

AN­GELA AND Jim Mol­loy had great cause for cel­e­bra­tion re­cently, when they cel­e­brated 50 years of busi­ness in Bray. They spent the an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions vis­it­ing each of the lo­cal out­lets now owned by their four chil­dren.

Mol­loys Bak­ery be­gan its life in Bray in Fe­bru­ary 1961, Jim hav­ing come from the fam­ily busi­ness in Kilkenny.

An­gela fol­lowed suit with the cof­fee and bak­ery shop some 12 years later, where one could pur­chase bread, cakes and other tasty treats from the bak­ery.

To­day, all the Mol­loy prog­eny are in busi­ness in Bray, with Peter own­ing and op­er­at­ing the Quins­boro Road bak­ery and shop, and Pa­trick the ad­join­ing cof­fee shop.

Their daugh­ter El­iz­a­beth-Anne owns Liz-Anne's on the Main Street, while Martin has Munch, also on the Main Street.

'It is a great joy for us to see all our chil­dren in busi­ness in Bray and though times are hard for ev­ery­one, I feel that one must face the chal­lenge of these tough times and look to the fu­ture with con­fi­dence,' said Jim, adding that he and his wife have been very lucky over the last half a cen­tury, par­tic­u­larly to have had such loyal and ca­pa­ble staff and the sup­port of the com­mu­nity.
