If you want to keep busy over the May bank holiday weekend why not cook or bake some of the delicious recipes on the Sligo CTC cookery corner.  For something light on these nice sunny days why not try Mairead’s refreshing Lemony Roast Chicken Couscous.  Thanks to our chef Lisa who sent in a family favourite ‘Meatballs’ or maybe bake some of  Emma’s yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies. Enjoy 😋
