Cork's first doughnut shop has closed its doors for the last time.
Huckleberry's, which operated from South Terrace and Daunt Square, closed both stores on Saturday.
It was open in the city for two years.
Owner Jason Woodward announced the closure on the business's social media pages.
"As of last Saturday, the 30th of June, I closed the doors on one of the best things I have ever done in my 30 years alive," he said.
[quote]It’s been one hell of a ride and I just want to thank each and every one of ye that have supported us and shown us love over the last two years.[/quote]
"I want to say thank you to the amazing staff I have worked with past and present that [I] now call friends."
Woodward opened Huckleberry's on South Terrace in November, 2016.
The shop often offered a limited number of free doughnuts which led to long queues of patrons outside its doors.
A second shop was opened in the city's Daunt Square in March of this year.
The news has been met with dismay by fans of the chain on social media.
