Minister of Agriculture Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue was spotted Sheridan’s Cheesemongers, Anne Street, Dublin 2
A spokesman for Mr McConalogue said he had followed all public health guidelines after his return from Brussels where he was on Government business last week.
The Donegal TD was spotted on South Anne Street, just off Grafton Street, Dublin, about lunchtime on Tuesday in the queue at Sheridans Cheesemongers…
Asked about the appropriateness of the minister shopping in Dublin on Tuesday afternoon, the spokesman said: “He followed the rules, he followed the guidelines, he was doing his confirmatory test a few days later and he was not required to restrict his movements in that time.
“There is no impropriety here and he was wearing a mask at all times yesterday [Tuesday].”

Do you think that, in some attic, there’s a piece of cheddar that hasn’t aged at all?

Was in Lidl in Leipzig [Germany] today. They had both British and Irish cheddar cheese on the shelves. Turn the packages over & you can see they’re the same cheese, from Cookstown in County Tyrone…Northern Irish identities in action, dominating British & Irish branding?
From top: Tesco; SuperValu
Following on from your Easons/Amazon post yesterday here is another one.
My absolute favourite cheese for topping homemade burgers is smoked applewood. In Supervalu it costs 2.99 for 150g which works out at 19.93 a kilo.
Whereas over in Tesco 185g of smoked applewood cheese, imported from the UK, will cost you 1.38 or 7.46 per kilo. 6
By my calculation this product is 167% more expensive in Supervalu than it is in Tesco.
Hooray for British cheese I say.
Fancy a Nomtorious lunch today?
