This week the big offer from Tesco Ireland is that they’ll double all your €5 vouchers when spending them on certain products. Sounds fab right? Well, it is if you’re into the following; clothing, frozen, suncare, fresh cut flowers & plants, and baby & toddler. If not, definitely hang onto...Read More
Good God, I ventured into Tesco, Dooradoyle, Limerick on Thursday night. That’s the evening before Good Friday, when alcohol can’t be sold. It was like a battlefield. You’d swear Irish people would never ever be able to get hold of a bottle of chardonnay for ever more! Anyway, if...Read More
My new fixation of late is Riesling, as the warm sunny evenings we’re miraculously enjoying cry out for a glass of something crisp and dry. So, emboldened by the surprisingly enjoyable bottle of Riesling
for just €5.49 in Lidl I rashly decided that all wine from the...Read More
I caught a bare five minutes of conversation on the radio the other morning, but what an interesting five minutes! I believe I heard Conor Pope making the point that many of the items included in the Tesco ‘price cut’ were cut alright, but only after going up first. ...Read More

Starting with their half price dinner, which is just half price spuds, wine and a roasting meat. Except this week it’s not...Read More
My weekly shop yesterday involved a bit of a wild card – Mother in Law coming to dinner. This meant that my usual hasty lazy thrown-together stir fry of a Sunday evening would have to be replaced by a proper meal. Involving effort. No problem, I thought, tearing through...Read More
Right, Tesco was out of the traps early on the 17th
February, offering, among other options, ‘half price dinner’; ham fillet, potatoes, veg selection and New Zealand Sauv Blanc, for €16.29. Not bad, given that it’d feed at least four, but totally and utterly yawn-worthy. Zzzz.....
Now, onto more exciting...Read More
Tesco have the usual dizzying array of special offers
, interestingly only on offer up until Sunday - if you're planning on nipping in to buy some half-price champagne (Taittinger, €49.99 down to €24.99) on Monday, don't bet on getting them at that price. Other Valentines specials include...Read More
