Weekend loves: This week’s must do, see & buy

The Taste of West Cork Food Festival has established itself as one of the best in the country. 

The line-up is again stellar, but what we love is the island action. 

From Sherkin (pictured) to Cape Clear, Garnish to Bere, there are foodie events scattered across the south coast this weekend.

There’s a Taste Tour on Bere, Derry Clarke will be hosting a BBQ on Sherkin - plus much, much more.

PJ Gallagher, Neil Delamere, Deirdre O’Kane, David O’Doherty, Eleanor Tiernan... Ireland’s top comics will perform on September 16 at Vicar St.

And the best part? Proceeds go to Poppy’s Wheels, a charity to assist nine-year old Poppy (above), who has cerebral palsy. 

Her parents are also raising funds to bring all terrain wheelchairs, hippocamps, to Ireland so families with children in wheelchairs can enjoy days out at the beach or the forest.

Funds will also go to the parents’ associations of two special schools to help them run summer camps.
