Dublin City Council (DCC) is to engage in a "market sounding exercise" about its plans to turn the city's Victorian-era fruit and vegetable market into an indoor retail food venue.

The council has planning permission since 2015 to turn the market at Mary's Lane, near the Four Courts, into a facility to rival Cork's English Market or the Covent Garden market in London.

It has now launched a new process "to gather industry views on the feasibility of delivering a retail food market", according to a public information notice in recent days.
