Have you seen it yet?

Christmas window displays have been unveiled at Clerys, the iconic department store on Dublin’s O’Connell Street – despite it being closed.

The festive-themed displays will take shoppers on a stroll down memory lane, with a glimpse at “Clerys Through The Ages”, which will look back on some of the most memorable decades since the opening of the building.

Clerys was bought in October this year as part of a partnership between Dublin based Oakmount and Core Capital, and pan European real estate investment managers, Europa Capital.

The developers have said that the revival of the Christmas windows is the first step they are taking towards regenerating the property.

Commenting on the project, Derek McGrath from Core Capital said:

“The re-development of Clerys is a fantastic project and we are excited about the future of the iconic property and its unique and historic location.

“We are receiving fantastic feedback from potential domestic and international tenants and expect to be on site, commencing construction works in early 2019.

“We look forward to restoring Clerys to its place as a landmark attraction in Dublin and we recognise and respect the history of the building over the past 165 years.

“Bringing back the Christmas windows is just the beginning…..”
