Dublin cafe will give girls free coffee tomorrow

Tomorrow is International Women's Day and one Dublin establishment is marking the event with free cups of coffee for its female customers.

The Fat Fox - just off of Camden St next to the side-entrance to Whelan's - will be handing out free drinks between 9:00 and 10:00 in the morning and 15:00 and 16:00 in the evening.

The takeaway-only coffee shop was opened in late 2016 by Rob Hallinan and Claire Cullen.

A carpenter and chef by trade - they decided to open The Fat Fox after a period spent travelling in the US.

"I just wanted to create somewhere I loved working, and that the people working with me would love it too," Claire told The Irish Times.


What mornings are all about, catch ups and porridge 😊

International Women's Day has been observed since in the early 1900's - it is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
