We always like to start with a story in Ireland, this one was too good for me to leave out of our website.
Seán (our six year old) and his Grandfather went out in the Bay to do some fishing.
Seán was over the moon that he caught a few fish, the bigger ones apparently. I put them on the specials anyway.
Mackerel salad starter with a bit of grain mustard mayo.
Two lovely women ordered two for their starters.
Seán, when he copped this, wasted no time proudly walking up to their table "You know dem fish there... I got dem" he announces.
One of the ladies politely inquirers with a smile "Oh, and where did you get them?"
"Well, .... In the sea........ Obviously"
he turned on his heel with his eye's in the top of his head.
Luckily they took it in good humor.
