Flight of Adare Manor
By Nicole Trilivas
With a program of country pursuits that includes falconry, archery, and shooting, Ireland’s extraordinary Adare Manor has no intention of leaving its aristocratic ancestry in the past.
Saoirse is formidable. She has the kind of unblinking, ice-white stare of a mean headmistress, and I’m in no rush to get to know her better – especially not after she frees a crystal-shattering screech. But despite my initial trepidation about coming eye-to-eye with a female American Bald Eagle with a six-foot wingspan, Liam Forde, Adare Manor’s Resident Falconer, quickly puts me at ease.
