Trafalgar Celebrations

21st and 22nd October 2005

Lismore joined enthusiastically in the Trafalgar celebrations with a barbecue, fireworks and treasure hunt on the 21st and a three course sit down meal the following evening. Beth Campbell and Tony McLarney performed yet another culinary feat by preparing and serving up food to a packed hall. The proceeds went to the Youth Club and to RSABI – supporting Scotlandís Rural Community and Seafarers UK. As starters they served venison meatloaf and mushroom pate with a large selection of breads, after which there was a choice of Scotch broth or basil and tomato soup. At this point a rum cocktail was used to toast all the fishermen and farmers who fed the fleet. A huge selection of meat, fish, seafood, and vegetarian main courses was accompanied by vegetables, salads, rice, pasta, and potatoes. Cheese and oatcakes ended a delicious meal. Before the toast Beth told us about the great part played by Scots in the victory, both as serving men and as providers of good food.
