I didn't spot one other shop in the whole Republic sofar (open to correction). Are the rest of us not notionsy enough?
And what do we need to catch up? Danny Healy to bang the desk again?

Nah, a glutton thing.

Well country people would be more interested in potatoes and cabbage and boiled ham. Anything more exotic will cause their turf addled brains to go into meltdown.

Dublin folk on the other hand have a more refined taste, and are more willing to try things like spice burgers, battered sausages and curry chips.

Well, Dunkin' Donuts were in Ireland in the early 90s so they're not exactly new here...just overrated.

I'm talking about donut shops popping up seemingly on every second street in our capital a few years ago. They were everywhere. See thread here this time last year.

The Dublin shops are starting to close one-by-one nearly one a week at this stage. It went from like one stall on O'Connell street 3-5 years ago to at least 100 locations from 10 different chains at 'peak doughnut' last year to maybe 60-70 now with a couple of the chains having gone under recently.

The trend started declining fast last year, I'd say by this time next, Dublin will be down to 20-30 locations and all the various new chains can choose between fighting it out, shutting up shop and banking the profits or expanding into other Irish cities and having the monopoly there plus the possibility of keeping the fad going with a new audience.

Dublin people just hang around waiting for the latest fad that will have them sitting in traffic queues for hours. I call it M50 syndrome

There's a big Boston Doughnuts stand in the shop part of Obama Plaza.
