This is one of three penny machines at Carrolls in Dublin. This location is a 5 to 10 minute walk north just across the Liffey river from the 15 Westmoreland store and is across O'Connell street from the 33 Lower O'Connell street location. It's about a 20 minute round trip (excluding rolling time) walk to all 3 shops. Store hours: Monday - Saturday 9:00am - 9:00 pm (21:00). Sunday 10:00am - 9:00 pm (21:00).
This machine's designs are identical to the machine designs at the 15 Westmoreland store. The Claddagh ring (Irish: fáinne Chladaigh) is a traditional Irish ring given which represents love, loyalty, and friendship (the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty).
Four designs available from a "The Penny Press" wheel cranked machine. Each cost €1 plus the Euro 5 cent piece that you supply.
Designs all have a small beaded border with 'Lucky Irish Penny Dublin Ireland':
1. (H) Leprechaun.
2. (H) Ireland map outline.
3. (H) A Claddagh ring with 'love' inside the ring.
4. (H) Shamrock surrounded by 3 smaller shamrocks.
