Just a quick post to let those who are based in Cork that the I had the date and venue for the 12th Cork Wine Fair confirmed today.  It’s on in the Rochestown Park Hotel on Wednesday November 21st.  Tickets will be €10, proceeds in aid of the Simon Community, and they should currently be on sale in all O’Donovan Off-Licences countywide.

Rumour that there will be craft beers and food stalls this year.
