‘If you go down to the woods today, your sure of a big surprise’…. well that was certainly the case yesterday at the Select Hotel’s Teddy Bears Picnic in Fota House in Cork. In fact nobody was more surprised I would say than the organisers as 1000’s of children, their parents with grannies and granddads in toe on what was the hottest day of the year swarmed the venue. As far as the eye could see there were smiling faces, children running excitedly in all directions, music in the marquee and everyone without fail enjoying the balmy weather. It is oft said that there is no place nicer than Ireland on a sunny day (not that we are at all biased in that comment!) and that was certainly the case yesterday. Fota’s stunning gardens were glorious in the sunshine and with many magnificent trees there was no shortage of shade, despite the masses in attendance.
