“Boots. Lamps. Laughing Buddha figurines. Hair clippers. Prime Energy drinks. Tubes of Crest toothpaste. T-shirts with ethereal wolves. Cardigan buttons and balls of wool. Eighty-year-old Turkish salt bags. Hash pipes. Communion dresses. Argentinian football jerseys with Messi printed on the back. Opal rings, jade necklaces and a grotto made entirely of purses and handbags. The labyrinthine Liberty Market at the top of Meath Street promises ‘everything under one roof,’ according to the mural painted around its corner on Engine Alley.”
The Liberty Market is one of Dublin’s longest running markets, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023. The official website is thin on detail but an article in “Totally Dublin” (from which the above quotation is taken) gives an entertaining insight into the old style, pound shop atmosphere of the market.
