Some of Ireland’s most prestigious food producers gathered together at The Square Table where talented sister act Tricia and Martina Cronin served a tasting menu beyond compare. This special occasion was just one event in the wonderful Old Butter Roads Food Trail which wowed those who attended any of the many superb events. From lamb tartare to wagyu beef to wild boar their flawless execution of fabulous local ingredients, along with excellent company, made it one of those perfect nights that so rarely come along.
Ecologist Tom O’ Byrne led an absolutely fascinating walk of the Clogheenmilcon Fen on Monday as part of the Old Butter Roads Food Trail & Old Butter Roads Festival Launch weekend. There is eating and drinking right there at our feet, if we were only to slow down and look!
The Old Butter Roads Food trail weekend ended at Irish pub of the Year Blairs Inn where the fabulous Blair brothers gave food and cocktail demonstrations, and some gorgeous samples, in their sunny garden on Bank Holiday Monday. The perfect end to a wonderful weekend.
