A Tuesday in Macroom

Today was a great day in Macroom! The sun was shinning and it was great to be outdoors chatting with everyone about cork bark.

We where visited by the Macroom Together for Yes Campaign and we got a second Yes badge. They do go very well with the colors of our friends Paulo and Joana from Hand Color back in Portugal.

Lastly, we met Mick Cadec of Cadec Woodwind. We talked for a long while because Mick uses cork regularly in the restoration of music instruments. It was great to talk in detail about so many details about the cork production and to learn about another use for cork bark, including how the advent of plastic had led to a shortage of cork bark in the mid  90s… Luckily those days are long gone and the cork is here to stay and to be a natural alternative to plastics…

Overall it was a great day! We will definitely be back in Macroom. 🙂
