The Great Irish Bake for Temple Street Children's Hospital

I'm very proud of my daughter Kelly who organised a 'Great Irish Bake' cake sale in the store this weekend in aid of Temple Street Children's Hospital. Many of the staff in the store and friends and family contributed baked goods such as cookies, cupcakes, fruit cakes and slices and she raised just shy of €500 for the hospital. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the cake sale and supported us by buying the produce. The table was cleared by 4pm!

Summer Barbecue Time

We've had a taste of the summer and we loved it! Barbecues were dusted off all over the country and the smell of smoke filled the balmy evening air. The weather is still holding up and we are delighted to have these barbecook charcoal barbecues on special offer. I know there is a lot to be said for the convenience and speed of a gas barbecue but you cannot deny the difference in taste when you use a proper charcoal barbecue. Barbecook barbecues promise to be safer and easier to light thanks to their patented Quickstart and Quickstop systems. Both these barbecues are suitable for cooking for up to 10 people so invite all your family and friends for a Summer get-together!
