17 signs that Dublin truly lost the run of itself in 2017

Get a grip.

DUBLIN HAS TRULY lost the run of itself. Again.

1. Dollard and Co opened, and are selling 10g of saffron filaments for €40

JUST what we Dubs need.

What diet? 🧀🥓 @dollardandco opens tomorrow at 8am...

2. Doughnuts are STILL A THING we’re willing to queue for

3. Blue lattes became a thing

The Cracked Nut began selling blue algae and beetroot and cocao lattes. JESUS.

4. Victoria’s Secret opened

Prepare for 2018 to be the year of PINK written on every young girl’s clothes.


5. Bewleys is back with sausage rolls for €6.50

Not even adult size! If that €12 refurbishment wasn’t enough…

6. Is Temple Bar getting even MORE expensive?

7. Animal bars are sneaking up in price and it’s probably all our fault

Who do we think we are?

Soon, we won’t have to leave the house at all.

Standard part of the grocery shop now.

11. We are still rejecting plates

12. Have you looked up, recently?

13. Aldi started selling hot tubs

14. Dunnes are still as outrageous as ever

15. Brown Thomas sold a €400 Easter egg

Yes, really.
