Road Records

Road Records was an independent record store in Dublin, Ireland. Extensive media coverage followed its closure in January 2009 but it had relaunched by April with the support of the Irish music community, it was used by people outside Ireland to purchase Irish music, such as The Cake Sale's charity album for Oxfam. On 16 July 2010, it was announced that Road Records would close for a second time, because of unsuccessful sales. Business stopped on 24 July. Hailed as part of the cultural identity of the city and lauded as being one of the city's best known independent music stores, its closure after eleven years of existence as part of the global credit crunch in early 2009 came to the attention of the national media when its owner, Dave Kennedy, highlighted the difficulties facing his store and the music industry in general on the store's website, difficulties which included being priced out of the market, the rise of illegal file sharing on the internet, the changing leisure pursuits of modern teenagers, the spiralling costs of running a business in Ireland and the rapid decrease in the number of people visiting Dublin.

Kennedy stated: We don't see any young people in the shop any more. The store was a popular topic amongst the Irish blogging community and its closure was greeted with posts expressing much disappointment. ThrillPier's blog had the post: "Road was the place to go for decent indie stuff. I loved the photos from local gigs that were up on the walls. Everyone from the White Horse generation of punk/indie fans will lament the passing of this great shop. Where will I get my Burning Love Jumpsuit CDs now?". Hot Press praised Road's willingness to sell the sort of music "not available" in other stores, describing it as "a much-loved fixture" in the Dublin music scene; the Irish Times described Road Records as "to Irish independent music what Richard and Judy are to new authors", referencing the British television presenters' renowned bookclub and pointing out that after having won an Academy Award, Glen Hansard visited the store when he was at home in Dublin. Road Records relaunched on 18 April 2009 following assistance from the Irish music community.

Irish musicians, Paul Noonan, Lisa Hannigan, Conor O'Brien of Villagers, Neil Hannon and Jape, played acoustic sets at the reopening of the store. On 16 July 2010, it was announced. Despite the support received, business was still failing. All records were sold at 25% off and other store items such as cash registers and turntables were put up for sale; the shop closed its doors on 24 July 2010. Official site

Nicholas II Devereux of Chanston

Nicholas Devereux II of Chanston was an Anglo-Norman nobleman living during the reigns of Henry III of England. The Devereux were a prominent knightly family along the Welsh Marches during the thirteenth century, Nicholas would play an integral role in attempts to control the Welsh Marches during the thirteenth century. Nicholas Devereux the Younger was born about 1220, the son of Nicholas Devereux the Elder of Chanston and an unknown woman, his father was a member of the retinue of Walter de Lacy, Lord of Meath, had served as his Steward of Meath. He spent his youth on his fathers lands in Herefordshire. Nicholas Devereux paid 1 mark for a pone in March 1246 to remove a plea from the county court of Herefordshire to Westminster. In October 1252 Nicholas of Ebroicis filed a plea regarding 6 armed-men of Walter Kingston that had destroyed his corn in Enlatheston. Walter Kingston failed to appear in court, orders were issued to the Bailiff of Nicholas’ district to take into hand Walter, Balearic Dunkers and Phillip Wayne.

Following the death of Arnold de Bosco, Justice of the Forest, the king appointed Peter de Neyreford and Nicholas de Rummeseye in March 1255 to inquire into trespasses in the forests, to sell a part of the woods for the relief of the king's debts in the forests of Southampton, Dorset, Somerset and Hereford. In Hereford, the sheriff was instructed to have the knights, Nicholas Devereux and Henry le Rus, meet with Neyreford and Rummeseye and assist with the execution of these orders. On 4 July 1255 Sir Nicholas Devereux was ordered to the send to the king as as possible the money, obtained from the selling of the king's woods toward the side of Nottinghamshire. If he failed to do so, the sheriff of Hereford was to compel him. Nicholas Devereux, like his cousins Sir Walter Devereux of Bodenham and Bromwich and the Marcher Lord William Devereux, supported the baronial cause during the part of the Second Barons' War, it is probable that Nicholas, like his cousin William, died at the Battle of Evesham on 4 August 1265.

His eldest son, Hugh Devereux, was an adult at the time, he was granted on 4 May 1266 safe conduct until midsummer for coming to the king’s court. Hugh supported the king as his inheritance was not recorded as subject to the Dictum of Kenilworth. John Devereux, Nicholas’ son by his second wife, would be required to redeem his inheritance in 1279. Nicholas Devereux married a woman named Isabel, they had children: Hugh Devereux of Chanston Isabel DevereuxNicholas married a second time to a woman named Joan and had children: Robert Devereux John Devereux, Lord of Munsley Robinson, Charles J.
