Booley & Butter - Forgotten Traditions of the Past
Event Details

Learn an ancient craft – how to make your own fresh country butter, how to wash , shape, roll and and season it. You are shown how to incorporate wild herbs that are free to forage right below your feet.

All of this is done on the mountain alongside the ancient ‘Booley’ shelter as it was for thousands of years. When the works done, sit back and relax in the mountain shelter with stunning views to the North of Slieve Gullions summit dome.

Enjoy a delicious lunch of simply prepared traditional food, locally baked breads spread with your very own butter, wild foraged preserves, home made jams, natures delicacies all washed down with a freshly brewed mug of hot tea.
