    Just thought I'd start a thread for us irish peeps, as we have different shops and fast food chains here, so maybe we could pool what we know here:)

    when I go to Dublin (my fiancé is Irish, from Clondalkin) I have seen a lot of WW products in Dunnes store. But of course I don't live there so I haven't been able to check everywhere, I just go shopping with DF in the shopping centre close to his mum's house when we are around. :)

    I normally do my shop in tescos but they dont have a great ww range, found dunnes and superquinn have the best range. I only buy the ww lasagne and the ww choc bars regularly (though I think they have changed the recipe of the bars and are not as nice). Bought the ww sausages last week from superquinn last week to try, they are yummy at 1 point each, really meaty but very pricey at E3.69 for 8!
    Few staples I cant do without are crackerbread, laughing cow cheese and special k bars, they are my saviour at the moment.

    Yeah think that's cos you have the same retailers as the UK up north but we don't so we are trying to recommend products to each other that are only available in ROI.

    I definitely find Dunnes the best... I got these little weightwatcher bun things there last week - Mini Victoria Sponges, and they are just to die for, but sweet enough that you could only eat one with a mug of tea:)
    Tesco's light choices stuff can be good sometimes too, and have the propoints on the back of the packets, but beware some of the products have points values rather than propoints so don't be fooled, make sure you check!

    oh and Marks and Spencers have their count on us ready meals on offer at the minute, 2 for €7, and they freeze really well, most will cook from frozen too, they too have the propoints values on the back. Very handy to have on stand by for those times when you don't have to cook a meal for the family!

    I came across a list of Supermacs foods there a few weeks ago, I must root it out and put it up here, handy to have to refer to in case you need your fix of chips!! And some of it isn't too bad on propoints:)
