Friendly Leap Card Agents (where to buy or top-up a leapcard)

This is coming up a lot now so think we need a separate thread.
If people could post places where they successfully bought or topped up a leapcard. Not all agents are up to speed on the system yet so some just refuse to deal with sale.

Please don't debate the leapcard or post issues here. There's a separate thread for that.
A sticky would be nice.

http://forum.railusers.ie confirmed these as working last week

Londis on Ballyfermot Road have them for sale.

Centra on Ballyfermot Road successfully processed a top up for me this afternoon.

In both cases staff said I was the first customer.

Spar, Fairview from above list refused to sell me one, saying they didn't know how to top it up.

Got one from C & T Supermaket, Philipsburgh Ave, Marino - who were completely up to speed.

I got one in Fresh on Wexford/Camden St.
They weren't fully sure how it worked. Took a few minutes but they figured it out.

Saw someone getting one earlier today in Jeffs londis in Palmerstown.

Judging by earlier comments about agents unsure about procedure, the fella in this shop seemed to know what to do.

I picked up my online top-up on Monday in Centra on Parnell Street, near the top of Moore Street.

I'd say this list will also be dependent on who happens to be on the till when you go.

This is an approximate list of locations, based on the Payzone website on Wednesday.

Unfortunately most of these agents aren't yet issuing Leap Cards for a variety of reasons. Machine not connected, LEAP cards locked away somewhere or not arrived and the main one, staff not trained how to do it.

I'm hoping to get a list of shops posted here, where people have been successful.
