The two were right beside each other too! Here's the entry I have:

[quote:24bj1acj]Placename: Dungarvan
County: Waterford
Townland: Fairlane
Barony: Decies Without Drum
Found on First Edition 6" map marked as "Brewery" just at the north side of the junction of O'Connell Street and Wolfe Tone Road. This marks a large building. There was a smaller brewery marked right next door, plotted seperately.[/quote:24bj1acj]

So, was one of these Power's? <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->[/quote:24bj1acj]

Looking through Minutes and Records of Dungarvan Town Commissioners and Urban District Council 1855-1950, note in 24 Jan 1865 of Mr Purser's Brewery est c.1860. As opposed to St Brigid's (est c 1800) run by a couple generations of Dowers before becoming Thomas Power & Co in the twentieth century.
Mr Purser's small brewery failed sometime after 1867 and was located on Fair Lane nearby Brigid's. In 1867 small brewery is Purser& Coady, Brewers. They do seem to be two separate concerns.
