Tertulia Bookshop – Brid Conroy & Neil Paul

I first discovered Tertulia Bookshop on our annual holiday to Mayo in 2021. I was in awe when I visited their shop and Brid, Neil and team were so helpful and now along with our annual holidays to Mayo, an annual visit Tertulia is also a must!

This was my first time to interview two people at once so I was a little nervous but both Brid and Neil made me feel at ease and it was great chatting with them and learning more about the people behind #Abookshoplikenoother
