Yerwan, cider woman, Sarah Mac - whatever you want to call her - we can safely say she's great gas. Sarah McNally gives us a sneaky peek into her journey round Ireland in her cider mobile with Mac Ivors Cider clinking away while on her mission to get into fridges and taps around the country to quench a thirsty nation.
We love food and we obviously love our great tasting ciders so Sarah pulled the trump card getting to Dublin for the Musgrave Food Stories event which included inspirational stories from restaurateurs, chefs, slow cooking demos, wine tastings and of course our great tasting ciders.
Our Sarah is just back from her holidays with Pedro. The pair of them sneaked off to Iceland for a week and left us back here in the orchards.
