Bookseller Eason is facing a legal action from the landlord of its landmark Shop Street branch in Galway, little more than a year after agreeing to sell the property for €7.5m in a so called sale-and-lease-back.

The case is understood to be an escalation of a rent dispute linked to the devastating effect on retailers including Eason of being forced to shut for three months at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
