    Congratulations! Well deserved – I spent a delightful weekend in Dingle recently and tasted my way through a lot of your shop. I am also cooking my way through your ice-cream book!

    Well done but very well deserved. I must try some more just to make sure it really is good! All in the name of research of course.

    Well done!

    And just to let you know, we were talking to an Italian lady last weekend about ice creams (where to buy a good one etc.) and she said that the best one she had ever had here was yours in Dingle – almost as good as an Italian ice cream, she said :-)
