Brendan Grace

Amazing Grace is a phrase often applied to Brendan Grace and is very true indeed. The genial and much loved family comedian is celebrating 42 years in comedy and is now more popular than at any time in his career to date. And what an illustrious career it has been!

Forty years ago when the 20-year-old Dubliner set off on his solo career, he could never have envisaged the life that lay ahead. Just two years later, he recordeed a Geordie song called Cushy Butterfield which sailed to Number 1 in the Irish charts, and the rest is history.

Darina Allen: A shared meal was once the bedrock of family life – its loss is a serious problem for society

Not surprisingly the decline in home cooking closely mirrors the rise in obesity – and it’s also undermined our social skills.

Summer is really on the way!

The outdoor, heated, swimming pool on the grounds of Ballymaloe House is filled as soon as the weather gets warm enough - usually sometime in May, and emptied when it gets too chilly to swim - usually in late September.

It has a large shallow end and a separate paddling pool making it ideal for children, however, it is possible to do lengths if exercise is what you are after. It is free for residents to use.

There is no life guard at the pool so children need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
