Speaking in advance of the Designer Dublin Christmas Market, Marion Walshe, who is managing the market, said: “We’re really looking forward to bringing a host of wonderful Irish designers and their crafts to Dublin’s College Green the last weekend before Christmas.

“As well as a host of quality products on sale from local producers and designers, a brass band will be on hand to entertain punters at lunchtime both days, with food and hot drinks available, making the market the ideal city-centre festive day out!”

The Market is supported by the Local Enterprise Office for Dublin City.
