The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FOOD -

Ham Sand­wich craft de­li­cious in­die pop rock and have two al­bums un­der their belt. They play The Head­fort Arms, Kells on De­cem­ber 23rd and the New Year’s Eve Dublin con­cert with Imelda May, Bell-X1and The Coro­nas.

What is your favourite fam­ily Christ­mas tra­di­tion? A round of Bai­leys cof­fees af­ter my mother’s loaded sherry tri­fle around a roar­ing fire. We nor­mally place small bets on things like who will fall asleep first, Mammy or Daddy.

What is your favourite friend Christ­mas tra­di­tion? I’ve re­li­giously gone to Jiffy, Neil and Anithas “The Sokays” house ev­ery Christ­mas Eve af­ter the pub. We’ll

nor­mally stay up late drink­ing, with their par­ents Jai and Mar­garet bust­ing some moves in the kitchen.

Any mem­o­rable Christ­mas food fails? One year, we were in­vited to my sis­ter Paula’s house, but there was a power cut so the turkey was un­der­cooked. So we changed plan and went to my sis­ter Mary’s and her turkey was cre­mated. My mother found the whole thing hi­lar­i­ous.

What is your favourite part of Christ­mas din­ner? My mother's prawn salad. The turkey with bread sauce and cran­berry sauce combo. We al­ways have a de­li­cious tri­fle too and the best paval­ova known to man. I paval­ove it.
