  1. “Medieval banquet with Galtee Cheese” Love it!! I wonder if the beer in the tankards is Harp? It was popular all over Ireland then.

    Mum used to put that Galtee stuff on salads (which were only ever during the summer) because we kids loved it and wouldn’t eat the “real” stuff, or something. I’m surprised they let us away with it, usually you had to eat what you were given and shut-up about it too! She used to get the proper cheddar for herself and dad from Carolan’s in blocks that were cut off using a wire thingy. She also used to get it in the “Windsor” sometimes, which was a small grocery as well as pub. I wonder if the 2 old ladies who ran it were still doing that up till it closed around mid-80s?
