The Lord Mayor of Dublin Daithí de Róiste this morning launched the traditional Henry St/Mary St Christmas market, Moore Street market and a makeover of the Temple Bar food market in Dublin. 

The Henry St market will feature 51 stalls this year. The market runs 7 days per week, from 10am to 9pm and finishes on Christmas Eve.  

Shoppers can expect to see Christmas gifts, decorations, toys, and much, much more when they visit the market this year. Dublin City Council welcomes the return of this much-loved Christmas tradition.
