Black Friday madness has well and truly arrived in Ireland with stores across the country advertising one-off specials and even hotels and holiday operators getting in on things.

Queues of motorists were spotted at Topaz garages around the country with fuel on sale for 99c per litre at selected stores for 99 minutes.

Retailers are predicting a spike in sales compared to last years event.

The tradition of holding sales on Black Friday has been imported from the United States with sales being held the day after Thanksgiving.

Across the pond people begin to queue the day before and frenzied scenes from stores have become a November news footage staple, but are Irish shoppers buying into the phenomenon and is there value for money to be had?
