Veggie Friendly Options at The Wetherspoons (Ireland)

Kerry and I have been in to Cork City a couple of times since being in Ireland and we have found The Linen Weaver, Corks only branch of Wetherspoons, to be a great, tasty, convenient option for grabbing a quick bite to eat. Everything is clearly marked if it’s plant-based and I have always found… Continue reading Veggie Friendly Options at The Wetherspoons (Ireland)

Quorn & Linda McCartney go Vegan

Something that made leaving the tranquil beaches of Asia behind and heading back west a little more bearable, was the fact that bothΒ Quorn and Linda McCartney have introduced new vegan lines into their ‘ready made’ ranges. This was such a welcome surprise to me and to (I’m sure) the 500,000 other plant-based eaters in the… Continue reading Quorn & Linda McCartney go Vegan

Irish Potato Cakes with Spinach & Kale

Think Ireland, think potatoes right? Ireland has quite the affinity with the good old spud and as Kerry and I are calling the Emerald Isle home for the next 5 weeks I thought I would embrace the heritage and carb up! So our first week here in Ireland we invested in a huge 4kg bag… Continue reading Irish Potato Cakes with Spinach & Kale

Ballinacurra Graveyard

Not far from where Kerry and I are staying in Midleton, lay the ruins of an old Church of Ireland parish church and graveyard. Circa 1525-1575 what remains of the church is pretty scarce, but the head stones that are scattered throughout the cemetery are in relatively good condition, many are readable and a few… Continue reading Ballinacurra Graveyard
