Annestown when the tide is out is a good spot for picking your own.

Many years ago I was shocked that nobody I knew in college had ever heard of Dilisk (or Dulse as they call it up the north).

I tried to explain that it was quite normal for people in Waterford to make sandwiches from dried purple seaweed ,of an intense salty flavour and rubbery texture.......or eat it as a snack with a pint in the pub during the summer.

I was told that Waterford people must be cracked in the head.....or mabey I'd been smoking some funny seaweed........

Tried to eat some of it in me local last year.....f**kin' horrible stuff , but everyone else in the pub seem to enjoy it.
