A lamb's tale
When you work up an appetite (and you will work up an appetite), make sure to tuck into some Roscommon lamb. Roscommon doesn't just have the highest lamb output in Ireland; it has some of the sweetest-tasting, too – thanks to free-range farming and lush, limestone-rich soil.
The result is finding its way onto menus all over Ireland, but it tastes all the better close to home, at local restaurants, farmers' markets and riverside stop-offs. Or you could always combine grub and a giggle at that lamb festival we mentioned.
Guess we know where Chris O'Dowd got his sense of humour.
