'FIVER FRIDAY' is coming your way this week and The Corkman has been casting about for what deals are on offer in North and Mid Cork.
So, here's a sample of what's on offer across the region - but, remember: check locally for more great offers on the day, and in the run-up to Christmas.

Meanwhile, at Griffin's Garden Centre in Dripsey they are offering mouth-watering beef Lasagne (made with local Aghabullogue beef) served with chips and salad for a fiver this Friday from 12:30-3pm.
In Mallow, local shops are offering some great deal in the run-up to Christmas.
