The new bistro at The Ardilaun

It is fair to say, I think, that we have all learned to lower our expectations a little when dining in a hotel. Often we hear the phrase “the food was great” qualified by the appendage “for a wedding”. After all, serving 120 plus plates of beef or salmon all at the same time is an entirely different prospect to cooking two or four plates to order.

‘It is all about stories’

THERE IS no doubt that one of this year’s hottest tickets in Irish theatre is Decadent Theatre Company’s imminent production of Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman, which opens in the Town Hall Theatre later this month.

Are the Tubber up to the task?

I cannot wait for the Ballintubber and Corofin Connacht senior final on Sunday, it promises to be a real cracker. Corofin are massive favourites at 4/9 while Ballintubber are priced at a very generous 9/4. These odds simply don’t make sense. Ballintubber have beaten a team that played in an All-Ireland club final this year (Castlebar) and a team that won the All-Ireland the previous year (St Brigid’s), yet the bookmakers think it is not worth their while turning up. Corofin have shot the lights out against every team they have played winning every game by 10 points or more, their semi-final hammering of Aughawillan more embarrassing on Leitrim club football than complimentary of Galway’s status.
