Done deals

We’ve covered the costs of communion day recently, advising shoppers to consider low cost alternatives such as Mr Price in a bid to avoid wasting your hard earned cash. DoneDeal has recently revealed average prices for communion outfits on their website: with over 800 live ads the average dress will set you back €78, while suits cost approx. €53. Considering that dresses and suits could cost anywhere up to €200 or more in shops, that’s a fairly significant saving.

Attention rugby fans

Ireland’s Six Nations campaign earlier this year couldn’t really be described as a success. Two wins from five games wasn’t what the fans would have expected, particularly as some thought Ireland might spring for three in a row. Nevertheless, the competition is over, and some people are already looking forward to 2017’s championship. Those people include LivingSocial, with a deal on offer for Ireland’s second match of the tournament against Italy in Rome. For €179 per person, you’ll get a two night stay in a three star hotel, plus a match ticket, or a three night stay for €199. If you’re looking for a more luxurious trip with a four star hotel, you’ll fork out €399 per person for the privilege.
