Look after your feet

Thu, Dec 04, 2008

During a typical day our feet endure a cumulative force of several hundred tons, with the average person, engaging in non-strenuous activity, walking approximately four miles per day or about 115,000 miles in a lifetime. All too often our feet are ignored, or squeezed into ill-fitting shoes in the name of fashion. The result for many people is sensitive or troublesome feet and difficulty in finding footwear to alleviate the problems caused.

Robert Lyons from Green Comfort Medical Footwear will be at Homecare Medical Supplies in Terryland Retail Park on the Headford Road from 10am to 4.30pm today (Thursday) to offer advice on footwear for problem feet.

Fine dining at great prices

Thu, Dec 04, 2008

I heard through the grapevine that Stefan Matz, the executive head chef from Ashford Castle, had taken charge of the kitchen at the g Hotel. Stefan was the person who created the excellent value/quality menu at Cullen’s restaurant in the grounds of Ashford Castle and I wondered if he would bring a similar offering to the g Hotel. He is also responsible for all the kitchens at Ashford Castle and has many serious awards to his credit including the Georgina Campbell chef of the year in 2007. Suffice it to say that the g is now a must visit for all food lovers and indeed for anyone who perhaps looked in those glittering windows and thought “I can’t afford to go in there”. The main covers are priced at €19 to €32 and that includes your vegetables. That, my friends, is very, very, competitive, and an example of what is on offer is black sole with crab meat in a velvet crab sauce for €25, and venison with redcurrant cream and crisp venison mousse for €22. Starters range from €6.50 to €15.50 and include inventive dishes to suit every palate.
