Just to let everyone know the good news…the results have come back on Missy’s tumour and it is treatable!
Needless to add, everyone here at Bealtaine is delighted and Missy is especially so!
It’s always worrying and upsetting when a much loved pet is ill and worst of all it would seem that the animal often picks up on this…but all is well and we breath a collective sigh of relief!
Thanks to everyone for all your good wishes…really, thank you all so much!

Today there has been all four seasons in one, with sun, rain, wind, snow, sleet, then warm evening sun…
This is the beautiful Fin lough, near Bealtaine Cottage. There are literally hundreds of loughs, rivers, streams, ponds and waterways within a twenty mile radius of Bealtaine…one thing is for certain; Ireland will never run dry!
