If we can buy as much as possible of our shopping this Christmas in independent local shops, then we can make a big difference to ensuring that these shops stay open, despite the recession. If we buy Irish Goods, we are also supporting Irish jobs.
We salute initiatives like http://www.iloveterenure.ie, and wish them the best in 2012. Perhaps we might see similar initiatives to support jobs in other parts of Dublin 12, 10, 8 and 6w in the coming months.
Other useful websites include www.localmarkets.ie and the American Website, http://www.shoplocally.com/
Local Green representative, Oisín Ó hAlmhain, has also some information on his website at http://www.real-dublin.ie/eat-dublin-buy-dublin
