GORMANSTON: Tuesday lunchtime

Lunch was the traditional Irish breakfast: black pudding, white pudding, sausages, bacon, tomatoes and, of course, chips. This was preceded by vegetable soup.

I skipped the next lecture and went round the back of the Castle and scaled the flights of steps to roof level.  I couldn’t get to the battlements, which are just for show. The view was pretty good, but I wouldn’t call it ‘fantastic’.  I took some photographs and, if I knew how, would post them here.

I collected my veil and went back to the lawn where Dan Basterfield was due to demonstrate how to inspect a colony for disease. We had to book for this one, there being a limit of 15 people. I think I was no 16 on the list but about 30 of us turned up.  Dan gave a good demonstration. He knows his stuff and is able to communicate it well.
