In this episode we talk to the owner of one of Dún Laoghaire's very unique small businesses - The Pen Place - at the top of the Dún Laoghaire shopping centre. Brendan Kerrigan runs a mecca for lovers of great pens and great inks in a tiny space sought out by everyone from rockstars to High Court judges. The business has survived the retail crisis that has affected the town - proving that great customer service, consistent high quality offerings and an owner with a passion for his work can overcome even a global pandemic. This podcast was recorded virtually via Zoom - Brendan on his Android phone and Aileen on her iPad attached to a Shure MV88 stereo microphone and a soundwall on her kitchen table, all done live on a BNI Forty Foot chapter meeting.
