19th Mar 2020
It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday. Don’t worry, we kind of forgot too.
We know there is a lot going on, but have you ever been more grateful for mothers or the people who ‘mother’, than you are now? A small gift will lift spirits, maintain a bit of normality and if you can buy from an Irish supplier, you will also be supporting our economy. Don’t they say that every time you buy from an Irish retailer, a fairy gets their wings? Something like that. Shop below

The softest just for her
White & Green was created in 2015 run by the team of Winckworth girls, made up of sisters Rebecca and Danielle and “mastermind mum” Sari Winckworth. The company came out of the realisation that there was a major gap in the market for a go-to brand of quality bed linen that valued organic and Fairtrade production. And so White & Green became precisely that. Their incredibly soft, but machine-washable and durable throws are now on sale reduced from E119.00 to 89.00.
Golden Discs are a blast from the past right? Well the Irish company are still around and want to make this Covid-19 period as easy and entertaining as possible. They are offering 20% off for any customer over 60, or self-isolating. Who wouldn’t like a big old box set or an old fashioned album to entertain them for the next while? See goldendiscs.ie/

Bean and Goose was founded by sisters Karen and Natalie Keane. They make chocolate at Last Tree Farm based in the Wexford countryside, Ireland.
