How to #ShopForIreland this weekend

We're doing what we can to support local Irish businesses.


Even though we're all still practising social distancing and most of us are working from home, we still want to help support Irish food and drink producers. 

We've decided to help our readers #ShopForIreland so we'll be posting every day to highlight producers around Ireland. Get in touch on our social channels with your suggestions on who we should write about.
