I was delighted when Cliona Maher, Manager at South Tipperary Arts Centre, invited me, last August, to curate an exhibition around Tipperary artists, which would be opened at the Arts Centre in early December.
I was honored when Emeritus Professor Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, holder of the inaugural Chair of Music and Founding Director of the Irish World Music Academy at the University of Limerick, agreed to do an interview with me for my blog a few weeks back.
I have spoken about GV, our sourdough starter, a few times before in my blogs.
Over two years old, I have made about 15 sourdough breads with it, and feed it every other day. However, I was never fully happy with any of the breads: though they did improve with practice, they just did not rise enough in the oven.
Unique Home in Borrisoleigh
Just about a 25 minute drive from Greenville, down several narrow winding roads typical of those you find in the depths of rural Tipperary, in the hills of Borrisoleigh, is the home of artist and horticulturalist Ciarnad Ryan and her husband Tim Davis.
