From the shores of Lough Talt, Sligo, here’s Foodie Roundup #10.
It’s been a whirlwind visit to Sligo, getting up on Friday night – breakfast at Nook on Saturday morning, dinner at Eala Bhán last night and home again as soon as I hit publish here.
But it’s been worth it – those write ups are coming later in the week.
While I watch sheets of hail pelt the lake, I’ve been going through the food pages for the week to pull out ten reads for your Sunday morning.
So, for edition 10 of 2019, here’s this week’s roundup.
