Summer is a special time in rural Ireland. With the arrival of the good weather, I see local farms making their silage, and with our own meadows not far behind it feels like summer has arrived.

That means a fresh chance to engage in the outdoors again. Then, of course, there is football, the calm of fishing and, if you’re lucky, an agricultural show to add to the gaiety.
