A Dublin shop hit by a power cut came up with a very Christmassy solution

Jam Art Factory has been in the dark for two days.

THE TEMPLE BAR branch of the Jam Art Factory design shop is one of around 40 businesses currently hit by a power cut in the area.

They’re now into their second day without electricity – not the best situation to be in with Christmas around the corner, so they’ve come up with a simple and festive solution…

They told that while the roads are currently being dug up to try to find the problem, they simply can’t spend another day with the store closed and so they’re “living in the 1800s” with the romantic candelight (and a few camping lamps).

The shop sells Irish-made goods like prints, tshirts and aprons, and are doing it old school with a cash only system today, as all tills and card machines are out of action.
