TODAY CONTINUES OUR look at some of the shops at the top of Stephen’s Green shopping centre, some of the quirkiest the capital has to offer.

As part of a three-part video mini-series, we spoke to some of the businesses on the third floor of the centre to get some insight into their lives and what it’s like to run a shop at Christmas.

In the second installment we talked to Ciaran Muldowney, the co-owner of House of Japan. In the last video, we spoke to Dermot O’Grady. the owner of the Green Gallery.

The businessman worked in a hotel for years, before finally realising his dream of opening an art gallery and building it into one of the most famous in Dublin.
