Avoca and an Irish Food Festival

Two weekends ago, Kathleen was in town. On Sunday we visited Avoca and then drove up to an Irish Food Festival. As we arrived as Avoca, I saw men sitting in their cars and that was a sign for the inside. Fancy food things, clothes, and stuff like that. The take away salad bar stuff was pretty good. But from here we drove up near Kells for an Irish Food Festival, hosted by Sheridan Cheesemongers.

The field was packed with cars, and there was a line down the country road just trying to get in. The area was packed with people. There were vendors with samples selling things, and vendors with food to eat. There were cheeses and meat vendors. Fruit vendors. I got a "pork" sandwich, which was mostly gristle and fat. I also found some ice cream which is actually ice cream, not weird ingredients. We sampled some things, let Nolan play in the bounce house and bouncy slide, and headed home after 2 hours of taking it all in.
