It might be worth checking out local independent shops/cafes/restaurants/hotels etc as sometimes they can be more likely to hire 14/15 year olds than the big chains. You could drop in or give them a ring and see if they know of anything going. It can also be helpful to ask any friends you know who are working.
if you want to know more about the law, you can check out this guide for how many hours, and when, 14 and 15yr olds can work: http://www.childrenslegalcentre.com/userfiles/Child%20employment.pdf
For more help with this, you might also want to get in touch with Meic, the information and support helpline for young people which is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:

I hope you find what you're looking for.
