The now-closed Natural Bakery outlet in Ranelagh; Fine Gael Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy with volunteers in Ranelagh, Dublin 6 this morning
The latest edition of The Phoenix magazine reports that on the day the general election was announced, January 14, the Natural Bakery outlet in Ranelagh was closed.
The next day the former bakery became a campaign office for Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy.
The magazine reports:
