AN af­ter­noon of sand­wiches, pas­tries, cakes and tea was just the or­der for the good folk of Ju­lianstown when the lo­cal de­vel­op­ment group staged a pam­per­ing day at the Church of Ire­land Par­ish Rooms on the Lay­town Road.

The Coole Swan Af­ter­noon Tea cer­tainly lived up to its name, spon­sored by Mary Sadlier of Coole Swan Liqueur.

The idea arose when some of the Ju­lianstown Com­mit­tee mem­bers met Mary at an event in City North Ho­tel and told her they had pre­sented the Lord Mayor of Xi­a­men in south eastern China with a bottle of the de­li­cious liqueur and Mary, be­ing Mary, im­me­di­ately of­fered to spon­sor an event for them.

The event kicked off with a lit­tle taste of that beau­ti­ful Coole Swan Liqueur, and then fol­lowed by smoked salmon on brown bread. There was an as­sort­ment of sand­wiches, freshly baked scones with a dol­lop of rasp­berry jam and clot­ted cream, and then some yummy éclairs, lemon driz­zle cake, choco­late brown­ies to name but a few pre­sented on a pretty 3-tiered cake stands!

Then the Cooker Demon­stra­tion be­gan with the ul­ti­mate show­stop­ping bake and none other than the grav­ity-de­fy­ing cake with sweets pour­ing over the top and tum­bling down the sides. This bake by Ann Marie En­nis def­i­nitely had the wow fac­tor!

They fin­ished the af­ter­noon off with a raf­fle and all monies raised from the event will be used to re­place ex­pen­sive gar­den­ing equip­ment which was re­cently stolen from a locked con­tainer in the Ju­lianstown Vil­lage Gar­den.

Ju­lianstown Tidy Towns would like to thank Mary Sadlier, Coole Swan, Ann Marie En­nis and all who at­tended this re­ally spe­cial af­ter­noon.

‘We are for­ever grate­ful to all our com­mit­tee who did such tro­jan work in set­ting up the room and then hav­ing to clear it all away! Thanks, too, to Robert Ward for com­ing to our res­cue and build­ing the stage! Great team event!,’ a spokesper­son added.

Ais­ling Mon­a­han, Bren­dan and Mary Logue, com­mit­tee mem­bers at the Ju­lianstown & Dis­trict Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion.
