Midleton Food and Drink Festival 2014

Anthony OConnor-17

The 2014 Irish Distillers Midleton Food & Drink Festival was held in the town centre on Saturday 13th September and East Cork Camera Group were there once again to cover the event and display our photography.

Blessed again with a beautiful day, Main St was alive well before 7am as stalls were erected between the Gooses' Acre and Broderick St. and food put on to cook. Then, as 9am passed, the street appeared to be ready for business as the first of the many thousands who visited during the day began to arrive, no doubt drawn by the variety of culinary smells wafting about in the air.

As the day unfolded the record crowds enjoyed the good food and drink, music, entertainment and fashion show as they strolled the length of the town while down at The Jameson Experience, Master Distiller, Barry Crockett, who has just retired after 47 years of whiskey making in the town, hosted a tasting presentation of some of the premium whiskeys made in Midleton. A vintage fayre was also in full swing and the craft sector was also well represented.

With a carnival atmosphere in Connolly Street along with stilt-walkers and face-painters, the kids were well catered for while the Midleton Brass Band lead the musical entertainment.

Congratulations to the organisers on another successful Food and Drink Festival and roll on 2015!. Mouse over the images below to activate the slideshows and get a flavour of the day through the images captured by the members of East Cork Camera Group. Enjoy!

St. Patrick’s Day, 2014 – Midleton

The 2014 St. Patrick's Day Parade in Midleton was another great occasion with a large crowd turning out to get the best view. The weather played its part too, holding mostly dry for the duration.

ECCG members were out in force to capture the day in photos. Take a look at a selection in the slideshows below. Mouse over the image to access the slideshow controls.
