If you love pizza, pasta, ciabatta and focaccia, then this pop-up market is perfect for you.

Coming to Meeting House Square in Temple Bar at the end of the month is The House Of Peroni Presents: La Primavera. 

On Thursday March 30 and Friday March 31, La Primavera will bring the taste of Italy to Dublin, with some of the city's finest restaurants taking part.

As well as food from fab eateries, there will also be stalls with fresh food and vegetables, baked goods and plenty of booze.

There will be a special cocktail to try over the two days which wil be made from "Peroni Nastro Azzurro, gin, dry Martini, elderflower cordial, chamomile and thyme syrup, orange blossom and lemon juice," and our mouths are literally drooling right now.

The market will be open from 7pm-10pm Thursday and 12pm-10pm Friday. 

Oh, and did we mention it's free in?


Here at SHEmazing! Towers we were oh-so ridiculously excited to hear about The Eatyard, a foodie market arriving in time for Christmas in central Dublin.

And now things have just gotten pretty epic – because three seriously delicious offerings have been confirmed for the launch.

Kicking off on Thursday November 24 Box Burger – a popular staple on the Bray seafront in Co Wicklow – will be there serving great gourmet burgers and sides loaded with finger licking toppings.

Next there's Dublin Donut Company – handcrafted doughnuts made locally in the capital. And especially for The Eatyard, the DDC team has come up with a build-your-own ice-cream doughnut with glorious toppings including the likes of homemade Reeses Pieces. Yum.

Finally, the family-run Broughgammon Farm has also gotten on board. Specialising in goat, free range veal, and seasonal wild game, they're all about sustainable food sourcing. 

The Eatyard is setting up shop beside one of the capital’s best-loved bars, The Bernard Shaw, on South Richmond Street and frankly we're hungry just thinking about it.


Beset by an angry mob and being beaten by sticks, one man captured on camera fighting off his assailants in Istanbul has been widely praised online. 

And the individual in question has been identified on social media and by Turkish media as Irish citizen, Mohammed Fadel Dobbous.

Indeed, Kuwait-born Mohammed – furthermore described as a professional boxer – is being heralded as something of a hero for standing up to the mob of local shopkeepers.

He had been at a market in Istanbul's Aksaray neighbourhood and was seemingly looking for a bottle of water.

Upon opening the fridge door in one establishment, he sent dozens of bottles flying to the ground – something which evidently greatly irked the stick-wielding shop owner. 

A large group of fellow proprietors then came to defend their colleague, some carrying sticks or stools.

However, footage of the incident, which is believed to have occurred at the beginning of this month, shows the besieged man defying unfavourable odds by taking the attackers on one by one.

Even when Mr Dobbous has a stool thrown over him and one shopkeeper hits him repeatedly with a stick, he hardly seems to flinch. 

A spokesman for the Boxing Union Of Ireland told Mirror Online today that "there is no licensed boxer," by the name Mohammed Fadel Dobbous registered with them. The Irish Amateur Boxing Association has said it is currently looking into the matter.

The widespread support for the Irishman follows a series of crimes by shopkeepers in Turkey.

In July, a shopkeeper in Izmir, a location popular with European tourists, was accused of beating a Syrian child.

And in February a journalist was stabbed to death by a shopkeeper after he threw a snowball at a window during a playful snowball fight.



We're four months away still – a full four months and a bit in fact (we just counted).

But that hasn't stopped one department store from getting into the spirit of things.

In fact, Brown Thomas in Dublin, Cork and Limerick are all unveiling their Christmas markets on Thursday – yes, that's August 20. 

Each store apparently has a "dedicated space," which has now been transformed into "a festive Christmas market – filled with Christmas trees and trim, beautiful decorations, crackers and festive food".

And the themes for this year’s BT markets (just so you're in the know) include Ice Palace; Venetian Winter; I Love Candy and Santa’s Journey.

Hmmm, we reckon we'll still probably end up doing most of our shopping at the last minute (circa December 23).

Ho, ho, ho!
