From Then to Now
LYK NU operated a bit differently back in the 1940’s compared to how it operates now. Originally customers posted clothes to LYK NU, they were then cleaned and sent back.
The name “LYK NU” was very unique also for the time. It is believed to be, by many the first use of modern day “text language” in Ireland at the time. Being on St. Stephens Green brought a lot of unique business with it. During times of big events such as the Dublin horse show in the RDS saw bell boys from the Russell and Hibernian hotels running over with guest’s clothes to be cleaned for the event.
