Year: 2014


This picture, taken on a walk through Belvoir Forest, represents the devastation that the tree disease Phytophthora lateralis has had on the forest. Thousands of trees have been cut down following the discovery of a fungus-like disease.

The dam at Silent Valley

“The Silent Valley Reservoir was built to gather water from the Mourne Mountains and is the main water supply source for most of County Down and a large part of Belfast.”

This is a beautiful part of the world and well worth the hike. My advice: bring a rain coat!

Leg of Lamb

I was never a fan of lamb, but I’ve recently discovered a love for this dish. There’s something quite satisfying about taking it out of the oven and serving it up to friends and family. Do you have a favourite recipe?
