One of Ireland’s most beloved old shops – where you can find damn near anything if you rummage around long enough.

It’s woven into the fabric of Irish life:

So it was only appropriate that the big giveaway on the Late Late last night was a €100 voucher for Guineys

They even had a little hamper featuring every product known to man to show the audience what they’re in for

Straight away, it reminded people at home of their mams

It beat out last week’s special Valentine’s giveaway anyway

Imagine how far €100 would travel in Guineys

“800 pairs of socks please!”

The audience looked pretty happy with the swag – but one man in particular knew its true value

Must be a fan.

Ah, memories of Guineys

The place will be packed out of it today

Better get a big basket.
