Food, glorious food!

Well, the Irish provide lots of food, but it is not always the best! It tends to be fully of potatoes – not kidding, you can have two or three different potato dishes or sides in the same meal! I won’t need to have another potato for months!

Tonight I had really good chips, thes best I’ve had in Ireland – and the toughest steak I’ve had for a while! With garlic butter! and onions and mushrooms!

Cork is very different from Dublin, and Mallow and surrounding villages quite traditional. The towns are characterised by narrow streets, and old buildings! There appear to be some new shopping centres, but these are not in the old cities but rather on the outskirts.

I’ve enjoyed meeting the Sisters in the convents. They are quite elderly, very welcome and really gentle, lovely women.

 

Tomorrow, I will do some touring, before returning to Dublin for the flight home. Sad to be finishing this journey, but glad to be heading for homee. Miss everone!
