in ireland lockdown has made us fall in love with the sea

Sumary of In Ireland, lockdown has made us fall in love with the sea:

  • “And this red one is pepper dillisk,” Marie Power shouts, her voice battling the elements, as she crouches over a rockpool and uses scissors to snip seaweed.
  • Well, we had a tour booked with Power, AKA the Sea Gardener, an authority on the subject who exudes infectious enthusiasm, it’s summer, so the rain is merely cold as opposed to freezing, and like many others in Ireland we seek a new appreciation of the sea.
  • Marie Power explains seaweed foraging to visitors to Kifarrasy strand, Waterford.

  • For so long we could not fly, dine out, go for a pint, go to the gym, watch a match or attend a concert, but by Neptune we could head to the coast to paddle, swim, surf, kayak, and, it turns out, munch seaweed.
  • The growing popularity of year-round sea swimming predates Covid-19 but Ireland’s lockdowns – some of the longest and strictest in Europe – made it a boom.
