The man found dead outside Starbucks café on Westmoreland Street, Dublin at the weekend was not homeless, as we reported without verification.

The body of Jed Eddison, 30, of Grangecon, Co Wicklow was discovered at 7.30am on Sunday.

According to The Irish Times: [Jed] ‘had been driven from his home by his mother into Dublin city on Friday.’

We are sorry for any distress our post caused.

You may recall a post from Saturday about ‘pollarding’at a new Starbucks café on Leeson Street.

Well, the trees are all gone now.

Just been into Starbucks for my morning coffee and spotted their well timed budget day price hike of 10c on talls and 15c on all other coffees. Very bad timing on their part and a bit greedy if you ask me. Think it might be time to start supporting the small independent coffee shops rather than the greedy multinationals. Thought it might be worth mentioning given their reluctance to give away food to charity too…
