Hiking The Burren Hills & Kayaking The Killarney Lakes At Sunrise

Exploring the spectacular white limestone Burren Hills on a recent Mountain Skills 1 Training Course. You may hear two cuckoos calling in the background. This was only the third time I have ever seen a cuckoo and the first time to see two flying together in courtship.

Check out the mist drifting slowly off the glassy waters of the Lough Lein entry canal and the glowing red dawn through the willow trees...

Foraged, Caught & Cooked Springtime Menu

Here is a pretty delicious springtime dinner menu we foraged and cooked up last week on a 'swamp fire'...

1. Red Ants (Juicy & Citrusy)
2. Spruce Needle Tea
3. Soup Of Nettle Leaf & Stag Horn Moss
4. Salad Of Dandelion Leaf, Bramble Bud, Hawthorn Bud & Gorse Flower
5. River Trout Caught On Hand Lines; Stuffed With Two Types Of Wild Sorrel, Cooked In Sphagnum Moss;
6. Young Bracken Fiddle Heads, Boiled For Thirty Mins
7. Dandelion Root Coffee

A later desert is crab apple and rosehip stew; slowly simmered on the edge of a fire in just enough water, until it turns into a jelly type mixture.

A wild foraging tip I sometimes give people is to carry some small restaurant sachets of salt, sugar and ketchup - which can all be added to your different dishes.
