Just in season…

Irish strawberries There was great excitement in Urru, Mallow on Wednesday when the first of the Irish-grown strawberries arrived from Rosscarbery amidst glorious sunshine. We stacked boxes of ruddy fruit on the shelves of the fridge, inhaling their fragrance all the while, until it was decided that we needed to open one – just for quality testing, of course. That punnet wasn’t long in being devoured, and – before they all disappeared with customers – I grabbed one for myself, to sit in the evening sunshine and eat, all tumbled on great scoops of Murphy’s Vanilla Ice Cream. The first real taste of summer.
