So happy to be on this list!
Just saw this. Of course, we’re always delighted to have the custom of our hardworking Gardai.
For a college assignment, Declan Hall and Úna Curran, made this advertisement for Murphys.
Could we suggest choosing this worthy charity?

There are all sorts of tasty things on bushes at this time of year, and my mother suggested I do something with Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides). A friend of hers had them in abundance, and so we went out to harvest the little berries.
I cooked them with a bit of sugar, blended them, and then strained it to remove the seeds.
The beautiful orange berries have a remarkable taste, extremely tart and nicely earthy, but it takes a lot of work and patience (the berries are tiny, and the black seeds inside them are very large). In the end I had only a small amount of coulis.
An hour’s picking with two people didn’t provide enough for a single batch of ice cream, and only about 400ml of the delicious coulis. If you have some around, it could be a great touch for a dinner party, though…
