Little Shamrocks News, Issue #6 -- Food Ireland Affiliate Announcement

Hello Friends

The last few months have been very busy here at Terry and I had an impromptu summer trip to Ireland for two weeks. We went to an Il Divo concert at The Point in Dublin. You can read all about it and our other adventures in the eight new stories which are online now. I have added a few new recipes, two of which were given to me by a well-known Mohill, Co. Leitrim cook, Tina Slevin. We have also been preparing to make some changes to the online store which are now complete.

After much consideration to improve our online store, we decided to become affiliated with our Irish food distributor, Food Ireland. The most important reason was to offer our customers a wider range of food choices, including perishable items such as meats, fish, butter and cheeses. Some of the other perishable items they offer are fresh breads, cakes and other baked goods. You will also find some non-food items, such as Irish pottery, tea kettles, tea towels, cookbooks and even some toiletries and cleaning products. Food Ireland also offers gift certificates.

There are a few products that will no longer be available. One is Butler's Irish Chocolates and the other is Bewley's Irish Cream Coffee. Food Ireland has a line of delicious Cadbury boxed chocolates, as well as many other brands of chocolate bars and candy. They do not offer Bewley's ground coffee but they do have Bewley's teas, instant coffees and other brands of instant coffee and tea.

When you visit the online store, you will see listed some of our favorite products, along with photos and descriptions. When you click on a product to purchase, you will automatically be linked to the Food Ireland web site, where you will actually make your purchase and payment. While you are browsing through their web site, you may purchase anything that they offer, even if it is not listed on our store pages. Your purchase will be shipped from Food Ireland directly to you.

We have changed the layout of the recipe pages with all of the Irish recipes at the top of the page and my other favorite recipes at the bottom. There is also a new Irish Recipes Index page where you can find the Irish recipes more easily.

We hope that you will be happy with the decisions we have made. We believe that this change will benefit but, more importantly, our customers. We are very interested in your opinions, so please use the web site comment form to let us know what you think of the new format. Thank you.

Until next time ...
