Lady Mary Heath was a famous pioneering pilot. She was born in Knockaderry near Newcastle West, Co Limerick, in 1896. She was an accomplished sportswoman who helped introduce women’s track events to the Olympics. The 1920s was an era when the world seemed to have gone aviation mad, thanks to the exploits of Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart. In 1927, Lady Mary became the first woman to hold a commercial licence in Britain, the first woman to parachute out of an aircraft, and the first pilot to fly a small open-cockpit plane from Cape Town to London. She set records for altitude in a small plane. For much of the 1920s she was one of the best known women in the world, brave, determined, and accomplished.

Dulse is the re-invention of the old Mulberry’s in Barna Village Centre, now almost a suburb of ever growing Galway city. Mulberry's was a surf and turf sort of place. It did a good selection of fish — crab claws, sole on the bone, monkfish, and mussels all featured. You would find dishes such as slow roast pork belly with broad beans, pea puree, and calvados reduction and prettily plated McGeogh's Smoked Black Pudding, with sweet potato puree, asparagus, and caramelised apple. Ballyhoura mushroom risotto with aged parmesan and truffle oil or pan-fried fillet of sea bass would arrive on a bed of warm fennel and orange salad and lemon sorbet with prosecco with a selection of perfect little berries floating on the surface. The reception area and cosy wine bar also served a few tapas-style dishes — crab cakes, prawns pil pil, calamari, spicy meatballs, or chicken liver paté. There was a comfortable waiting area also to accommodate the busy takeout trade of pasta and bistro dishes.
