    Hi Caroline – I heard this was a great night, i was sorry to miss it. Us Tipperary folk are lucky to have such great choice at our doorstep. I’ve just made a trip to the Apple Farm for a big box of cooking apples for Mum (i’m looking forward to the apple tarts!!). Hickey’s fruit cake is a big hit in this house too… we’re not hard to please!!

    You’ll have to be there next year! You know I’ve always been a fan of the Apple Farm too, ever since you first started bringing their juice ’round for Christmas – was it about 10 years ago?Eimear was telling me that your mother freezes Hickey’s brack in slices, then toasts them to defrost. Yum, yum, yum!!!
