Who wants to help me to build a green house? Not a greenhouse for plants, a green house from 100 per cent natural and sustainable materials, for people to live in. I have the skills and the designs, but I need help to build the project. The task has become too great for this grandfather of four to do alone. I'm appealing especially to older people, although young enthusiasts are very welcome too. The project needs the knowledge and skills from life experience and also youthful vigour and enthusiasm. On the plus side young and old volunteers will learn skills such as thatching, stone building, cob building, coppicing, and hedge laying.

Encouraging small scale food production is a laudable mission statement for a small organisation based in rural County Galway. Poultry keeping, fruit and vegetable growing, and even building and cooking with clay ovens are all on the Kinvara Sustainable Living menu. Anna Jeffrey Gibson and Lynn O’Keeffe-Lascar have added a new series of one day courses to their popular evening classes.
I have made passing reference to this super new deli and now that they have had time to source all the goodies it is worth telling you about some of the unusual and great tasting items I have sampled. The word ‘deli’ is a highly abused term over the last few years and there are so many it is hard to tell the good from the bad — indeed a real deli is a distinct rarity and this is certainly the best for many miles around the Oranmore area. It is tucked around the corner from Main Street, Oranmore, facing the astroturf pitch with loads of free parking, even at the front door.
Now that the school holidays are upon us, the time is ripe to get your children hooked on the joys of the room outdoors. The cool, wet, month of May this year has meant that the growing season is running a few weeks late, which means there’s still plenty of time to start growing flowers and vegetables. This summer could be your chance to help the younger members of your family develop a love affair which could last a lifetime.
The American Holiday of Thanksgiving falls on the fourth Thursday of November and Galwegians will have a chance to join in the celebrations next week.
Emer Murray, crowned by food writer John McKenna as ‘the best baker in Ireland,’ was an unhappy law student at NUIG. She came from a business and insurance agents background, and the law just didn’t have the excitement she thought it would have. One day her mother Ena told her that John and Anne Sherry were looking for outside caterers. They had recently taken over Lydon House, and wanted croissants and Danish pastries for their breakfast menu. Emer, who had a passion for cooking, went into O’Gorman’s bookshop, bought a book on making breads and pastries, and, that evening called round to the Sherry household with samples. She got the job.
