If there is a local event relating to food, chances are I will do my best to attend. I recently went to Festival Lough Erne, a food event in Fermanagh with my Mum and aunt. After hearing about the Speciality Food Fair in Moira, I knew I would attend.
I have a soft spot for Moira. I worked for the Moira Guest House and I have family nearby. I love Moira for all its coffee shops and the wide variety of shops in the village.
It was a beautiful summer’s day in Moira. I arrived at Moira Demesne to see the play area filled with children enjoying the sun. The area was full of activity with people of all ages enjoying themselves. I visited the event with my aunt and we made our way to the tent where local producers were showcasing their goods.
My biggest fear as a child was dogs. It was not the most manageable fear, especially as I grew up in a rural area and each family seemed to have at least one. I would sit in the car while Mum visited a friend and my friend’s parents knew not to let the family dogs anywhere near me.
I have grown out of my fear and fallen for dogs completely. I bonded with my cousin’s dog Brody, and realised how much personality each dog has. Being a big dog lover now, I was delighted when Shannon asked me to come to the Salty Dog Show with her.
Last week, I wrote about how Tall Ships fever had taken over Northern Ireland. Game of Thrones fever has been thriving in Northern Ireland since the HBO series premiered in 2011. For those who are not aware, a lot of the series is filmed in NI, with locations such as the north coast and Castle Ward as well as Titanic Studios.
