Birthday dinner in West Cork

egyptienne | Jul 3, 2009 08:25 AM

I am co-hosting my mother's 70th birthday in/around Clonakilty, Co Cork this coming May and will likely end up doing the catering with the help of some relatives.

I am wondering if anyone knows what is fresh and locally available in that area at that time of year- is Spring Lamb still around late April/early May? Is rhubarb in season yet? Will I be able to find local producers to purchase directly from since I will be feeding easily 50 or more? I know that food just costs more over there- but is generally a lot better too. I don't know how purchasing alcohol would work.

Any suggestions are welcome!
