€5 Meal Deals
Over 40 chippers across Dublin are raising money for Pieta House today.
The takeaways are serving up €5 meal deals with proceeds going to the charity.
Meals include fish & chips, 1/4 pounders & chips and snack boxes.
Participating stores will have donation buckets on display.
Additionally each chipper will be making a donation of profits to Pieta House.
The fundraising event has been organised by The Irish Italian Chipper Communities.
Here are all the restaurants taking part:
The restaurants are coming together in honour of Enrico Marsella.
Marsella, who was involved with The Irish Italian Chipper community, died in August 2019.
A spokesperson for the initative said, "Enrico was just 21 when he passed.
"He was a huge part of our family and our community."
"Never ever feel alone in the fight for help. Emotional pain is just as serious as physical pain."
