Dermot & Dave’s Jingly Bits

So.. today was an exciting day at Wellnice HQ :-) After shooting off a quick email to Dermot & Dave at Today FM, we were delighted to get a call back saying that they’d do a jingly bit for Wellnice Pops!! (We sent them a pure funny email and we reckon that’s what sold it 😉 ) We had great fun chatting with them & we think the jingle is pretty hilarious! Have a listen and let us know what you think…

The Limerick Milk Market

Wellnice Pops Limerick

Guess who are the newest traders at the oldest weekly market in Ireland? Yep, you got it……. We are thrilled to announce that you will now be able to get Wellnice Pops at The Milk Market on Fridays & Sundays (hopefully we’ll be adding saturdays to that list before long!) So no need to fork out for festival tickets, or to spend damp nights in Lidl pop up tents to get your Wellnice fix! 😉 I’m sure most of you are familiar with this legendary market, but if not you can find out a little more about it here. It’s a real eclectic market and we’re really honoured to now be part of it. Whether you’re looking for a great coffee (Hi Harpers :-) ) & a bite to eat, or some vintage threads you’ll be sure to find it here. Not to mention some really funky events. Anyone for a little sunday morning Tai-Chi? Or a rocking outdoor “Live at the Big Top” gig? We look forward to seeing you all there real soon :-) #TeamWellnice

The Forbidden Fruit Festival

Wellnice Pops Limerick

It was with some slight trepidation that we set out at 5:30 am on the morning of Friday May 29th. This was Pop Shacks maiden voyage, the first time Trin would be pulling it, and we had to go all the way to Dublin!! And so it was that after much checking of rachet straps & cable-tying, we set off!! We were hardly 4 miles down the road when Trin uttered the now infamous words, “Uh oh you might have to die”, as some small creature legged it across the road. (Disclaimer: no animals were hurt in the making of this blog post) The rest of the journey was pretty uneventful, well apart from nearly getting knocked out by a bunch of Japanese tourists at The Barrack Obama Plaza. We were in Kilmainham before we knew it, and were delighted to be in good company, spotting the Murt Whelan gang in the tent longside us (#LimerickAndProud). The sun was blazing as we set up and the festival site was looking amazing. We pulled on our new Wellnice hoodies & chatted with our neighbours….Ruth, Steve & Tina from Cornude Artisan Popcorn…..which is absolutely friggin’ amazing by the way!! We were feeling pretty good……until the tirdness set in that was! We had just put in a 75 hour week & we were only on day 1 of a 3 day festival. Clearly a Wellnice nap was in order!! Over the next few days, we really went through a baptisim of fire. Who knew it was possible to learn so much in such a short space of time? (Most important lesson?? Don’t go to a festival with out adequate signage…….EVER!!) We met some really interesting folks and ate some really good noodles courtesy of Wok’N’Roll. Oh and got to hear some banging tunes!! Think Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada & Richie Hawtin :-)
