Cork Style is always in Fashion

On entering Joan’s premises I went from a nervous feeling to that of meeting an old friend in a matter of moments.  It’s taking the easy option to say that Joan has a lovely manner that puts you at your ease.

Anyone for Golf?

Gone are the heady days when people were happily paying hundreds of euro for the pleasure of pulling their hair out in frustration, at the frequent downpours and returning red faced and windswept 4 hours later to the club house. Oh what a funny game golf is, destined to enslave us (as witnessed by many golf widows) or drive us […]
