    Origins of the Granny Smith

    Apart from the clocks going back, another annual event at the end of October is of course, Halloween.  Medieval historians tell us that its connection with the pagan festival of Samhain has been overstated but Halloween has been recorded here for some centuries. For instance, the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork has a painting by Daniel MacLise, the Cork painter who was a friend of Charles Dickens.  It’s called Snap Apple Night and it depicts a bawdy night of Halloween partying and games that MacLise attended in Blarney in 1832.  Almost two centuries later, apples and apple games are still ...

Mr. Hickey the owner of the recently ...
