Where do you buy a deadly Christmas jumper? At the Deadly Christmas Jumpers shop of course. It’s only deadly, and 100% Irish.
We first came across the shop in 2011. Is it still there? It was next door to an empty shell of a place that used to be the brilliant Deegan’s tobacconists and newsagents, which is sadly no more.
Both buildings look like they’re in a seriously rundown area, but believe it or not the two premises are near Dublin’s premium shopping area. They’re on South Anne Street, and just a shopfront away from St Anne’s Church on Dawson Street.
After we came across the bricks-and-mortar store for jumpers two years, we also stumbled upon the online shop launched by the same Deadly Christmas Jumpers People. Their Interweb page at DeadlyChristmasJumpers.com says:
“When you see people wearing Christmas Jumpers in early November, it’s the first indication that Christmas is coming.”
“Deadly Christmas Jumpers”. Yeah, it almost sounds like a good title for a crime story.
