TOWN FURY AT SEX SHOP.

Byline: LIAM HORAN

RESIDENTS in a rural town are up in arms over plans to open up a sex shop, it was revealed yesterday.

Community groups have backed local businesses to prevent the Adult Party Shop trading in Athlone, Co Westmeath.

A sign has been placed in the window of a vacant property on Pearse Street, just yards from the town courthouse.

The notice invites applications for a manager and full-time and part-time staff - but all calls to the mobile number are diverted to an answering machine.

A meeting of the Connaught Traders' Association has been called for tomorrow night to discuss the matter.

Gardai said as long as the 18 age limit is observed and only legal products are sold the shop would not be breaching any laws.
