A chairde,

Due to COVID-19, An Ceathrú Póilí has taken the decision to close our shop in An Chultúrlann until at least the end of the month but we will keep offering books online. We will make sure to update you when the situation changes.

As a small, independent bookshop we are dependent on our customers’ support. In 1984 we were closed by fire but re-opened quickly. Due to the rapidly changing situation due to coronavirus, that may not be possible.

After 36 years of your support, we need it more than ever to ensure that we are able to re-open when the time comes. Many of you will have ordered through our website and some will not have. We hope that you can browse through our books and spread the word to friends and family – we will still be open online and Áine, Pádraigín and Séamus will be checking our online orders each day to ship them.

An Ceathrú Póilí are still open for business online – please note that backordered products may take longer to ship due to present circumstances. We will notify you once your backordered product has been shipped.

We hope that you remain safe in the coming weeks and months and thank you for your support over the last (almost) four decades – we will keep in touch.

Le dea-ghuí,
Áine, Pádraigín, Séamus agus Aisling.
