Good Monday Morning

Good Monday morning Ireland.

Here is a beautiful tune about the once thriving blacksmith, now sadly in decline.  Let’s keep this tradition alive.

Dublin Flea Christmas Market

Hop along to the Dublin Flea Christmas Market

Friday 9th December – Sunday 11th December 2016

The Local Enterprise Office Dublin City (LEO Dublin City) is proud to support Dublin’s best loved, free entry, Christmas Market, which comes to the Point Village (beside the 3Arena) from Friday 9th December to Sunday 11th December.

 

Greg Swift, Head of Enterprise and Economic Development, Dublin City Council, commented, “We are delighted to be supporting the Dublin Flea Christmas Market in the Point Village this year.  There will be over 100 stalls showcasing the work of independent designers, craft makers and artists.  By purchasing Irish-made gifts you will be supporting local jobs and buying unique gifts that are not available on the high street.”

He continued, “The market is free of charge, it’s a place to come with friends and family and spend some time browsing the stalls, enjoying the festive atmosphere and getting a bite to eat or drink.  The market is indoors so you will be cosy whatever the weather is like.”

Stalls will be spread over 2 floors of this ultra-modern repurposed shopping centre with 15,000 visitors expected to come along over the weekend.  The relaxed atmosphere offers lots of space for shoppers to take their time and enjoy the annual hunt of the perfect Christmas gift.

The Dublin Flea Market is a family friendly day out with lots to keep the children entertained including well know magician Hamish Urquhart working his magic on them.  There will be food for everyone with a great selection of hot pie stalls, falafel, sweet treats and seriously good coffee, all under a covered hangout area where buskers and carol singers will entertain satisfied shoppers.

Whether browsing for presents or decorations for the home, haggling for bargains, feasting on the food stall treats or simply meeting up with friends to soak up some Christmas atmosphere, it will be impossible not to feel the festive vibe at the Dublin Flea Christmas Market.
