On my way dropping off and picking up people yesterday (mums taxi). I had a brief stop at Creevylea Abbey, Dromahair, Co. Leitrim.
U is for Undiscovered. I found Diarmuid and Grainne’s Nature Trail today. It’s out at the Benbulben Centre, Rathcormac, Sligo. It’s a gravel path through fields with numbered rocks which leads to a lovely little waterfall in a rock formation. I don’t have any information on it, so if anyone can tell me more I’d be delighted to know. It was a lovely walk with just sheep and a couple of rabbits for company. Here are some more photos from my walk.
There are more photos on my Facebook page.
The first new stall is The Pieman, we saw him at the Christmas market in Carrick-on-Shannon and were very impressed. The pies are fantastic, full of quality ingredients and very tasty.
The other new stall is An Caife Bia Slainte who make wonderful cakes in all kinds of lovely flavours. It was a hard job deciding which ones to choose.
Can you believe this is a cake! Wow! I took more cake photos if you want a look.
I treated myself to some beautiful daffodils from Leitrim Flowers. Although their stall wasn’t there Trimilawn Farm Herbs were doing a great job selling some of their flowers and plants as well as their own wonderful selection of herbs and teas.
If you haven’t been to the Sligo Farmer’s Market before it’s well worth a visit. There is such a great selection of products for sale and the atmosphere is brilliant. It’s on every Saturday in the IT Sligo from 9am-1pm.
In between collecting jumble today for our jumble sale (on June 23rd) I had a few minutes to spare so I went down to the outdoor gym in Doorly Park. It’s a great place and it’s free I got distracted though by the bees.
There are so many lovely colourful flowers and they were covered in bees. I love bees, when I was a child I used to stroke them and I never got stung…except for the one time I fell out of a treehouse and landed on one!
I really loved the Leitrim Flowers stall. All their flowers are grown organically and they smell as good as they look.
