I thought the Vintage Afternoon Tea sounded delightful so I went along to check it out. It was set in the Castle Cafe which is in the grounds of […]

Magnumlady's blog is the one I most look forward to. Her updates are mostly funny, sometimes having a wee rant, and generally a one-woman guide to Sligo and surrounding counties. I've been introduced to all sorts of places and activities. Oh to have the energy and time to keep up with you Val. You're an amazing lady.
