We had been thinking recently about writing an article to do with Irish/Northern Irish traditional food. We could have had hearty food such as stew, champ, colcannon and boxty. We could also have had the very strangely named vegetable roll which still puzzles Martha who isn’t from around these parts! She thought she was getting something healthy the first time I gave her it so was rather bemused when she bit into what tasted like a sausage! Apparently it contains leeks, which makes it qualify as a vegetable product. Christmas dinner contains parsley in its stuffing so it probably qualifies as a salad in Ireland by that reasoning! In the end we decided to downscale slightly, for now at least, and talk about that other favourite food type … Irish bread! View Post
Thursday is video day! We are trying something a little bit different again, so let us know what you think.
Today we are showing you one of our favourite hikes here in Northern Ireland. It has the added benefit of taking you into the Giant’s Causeway free of charge. This intermediate walk takes in some stunning scenery. You will cross a river, the gorgeous Runkerry Strand in Portballintrae and incredible clifftops.
The walk is gorgeous any time of year, as this proves. It was taken on a sunny February day before baby Jonas arrived.
