In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “ROY G. BIV.”
Whenever I see a rainbow and it’s many colours (ROY G. BIV) I always think of ice-cream and if you lived in our town you would understand why. This photo of my granddaughter making a delicious treat in our local ice-cream parlour should give you a hint. Have you ever seen a more colourful control panel on a machine? Not to mention her pastel rainbow-coloured tee-shirt. But wait till you see the various colours and flavours of artisan hand-made ice-cream and sorbet the owner of Fantastic Flavours has to offer.
So, is your mouth watering yet? Mine is and I know where I’ll be going later. Miceál O’Hurley bought an ice-cream maker at a car boot sale in America, many moons ago, not realizing that it would some day lead him to opening an ice-cream parlour in a seaside town in Ireland. You can read how that came about on his Blog along with some of his ‘absolutely true stories‘ which are hilarious. Miceál is a published author and has led the kind of life that movies are made of. He kindly organized my first book launch in his ice-cream parlour, which was a very appropriate venue for a YA novel.
If supplying the town with a rainbow of artisan ice-cream was not enough, Miceál has also created a Youghal version of the board game, Monopoly, featuring some of the local businesses. As you can see, the board is as colourful as his ice-cream.
