BACK TO THE 1950S

 

Madam, - Forget your cappucino and your latte.

The final proof of straitened economic times is the fact that IREL "coffee" is back.Tesco in Merrion Row now stocks the square-sided tall bottle with the little green map of Ireland, evoking the "cold hard" '50s and '60s.

Recession chic?... more like recession chicory! - Yours, etc,
