I like to ride waves for fun and examine what lies beneath fronds of kelp for scientific interest and well, fun also. But there was a time not so long ago, when the only reason most people entered the sea was to find and bring home food to sell and eat.
I suggest for those of you who wish to reestablish the connection between the seafood we eat and where and who it comes from, and of course to have some fun aswell, to consider two festivals which take place in County Mayo this month;
Féile na mBradán 2009 10 – 19 July www.ballinasalmonfestival.ie
Achill Seafood Festival 9 – 13 July www.achilltourism.com/seafood.html
