Eire – new ScooterNova stockist

We are proud and pleased to announce that there is now a stockist of ScooterNova magazine in Ireland, which will mean a cheaper option for Irish scooterists to buy the magazine.

The shop is Bell, Book & Candle in Galway, a secondhand book shop run by scooterist Paul Deacy.

As well as ScooterNova magazine the shop also stocks vinyl records that many of us love searching through, along with plenty more besides. He offers a mail order service too, as well as welcoming customers through the door.

Bell, Book & Candle can be found at

The Small Crane, Sea Road, Galway, H91 DV76. Their telephone number is 091 589060 and you can email them via pauldeacy1@gmail.com (postage costs within Ireland will be cheaper than buying individual magazines from us in the UK).

With larger shop chains in Ireland apparently reducing the magazines they stock, we ask you to please support independents like Bell, Book & Candle.

Paul not only has the brand new edition of ScooterNova in stock, but also all back issues from number 1 onwards for those wishing to catch up on their reading.
