Their first meeting, however was not a normal rendevous at the local dance but occurred while both were interned for supporting the cause of Irish Independance in the Ireland of the 1930’s – Máirtín Standún in the Curragh and May Mulready , one of the first women ever interned in Mountjoy Prison.

On release from prison this interest in things Irish continued to grow and when Máirtín and May came across a small drapery shop in Spiddal for sale while on a cycling holiday in Connemara, their destiny was sealed..
