Hello everyone, kindly share this if you can..

If you are struggling financially to put a dinner on the table on Christmas Day or if you live alone and don’t have someone to spend the day with, Sitar Indian Restaurant Carlingford will be serving free dinner to anyone who walks through our doors from 1pm – 4pm.

We need your support in this matter, spread the word so we can make sure no one will miss out on this. If we can make Christmas just a little bit better for even one person by opening our doors and providing a warm and friendly meal, well that’s enough for us. You can eat in the restaurant or take away.

You can have a lunch with us or simply take food home.

No questions will be asked!

Much appreciated,

Ricky

In fairness.

        in fairness there are Indian Christians, they thought it would liberate them from the caste system, but +1 indeed, it’s Christian in spirit anyway

    Fair play. I’m nowhere near Carlingford but hopefully some people will give them their custom as a thank you for the kind gesture. I’ll try to do so to restaurants offering the same around my neck of the woods.

    Fantastic. I like Indian restaurateurs a lot – very family-orientated and into creating big sharing dishes with a philosophy of sharing food in the community and breaking bread together.

    Will definitely visit there when up that way again. Carlingford is a great spot.

      Well if you like Temple Bar crowding and prices yeah. In fairness, Carlingford proves what can be done when the whole community pull together- they are so focused on their tourism trade it is unreal.

      You can actually see Kilkeel across the lough from there. Kilkeel doesn’t do tourists of course- just strangers.

          So that is Rostrevor on the corner if you are looking from the Omeath side of Carlingford?

          It’s definitely not the point.

          Oh please- since when did hiking up a mountain by retired professionals become the main reason people check into Carlingford?

          There is more extra martial activity than in a Thai ladyboy club.

            I’m a professional but I’m not retired.
            And I don’t do martial arts.

            After visiting family in Cross, I take the walk up at Rostrevor and the Mournes and then come down and do a bit-a kayaking around the lough. Pottering around the peninsula wouldn’t be unusual and if I’m with visitors I’ll bring them to the Long Woman’s Grave or just nice vistas over the lough. When I was there once I did the most amazing pier jump which I try to do again and again because it’s so refreshing but requires helmet and life vest.
            The Carlingford oysters are fresh and lovely and the pints too.

            If there is anything sinister about these pursuits, soq, or about my choice of weekend break, or the location itself, they’re in your sordid mind, not mine.

    Damn foreigners coming over here giving away their delicious food for free to people in need, no doubt there’ll be protests by the G’OD crowd.
