Talty Global Distribution

The Global Distribution of the Talty name is something which is being generated as records are collected, and it is hoped that in the coming months maps of locations where Talty families settled will be available.

Stephan has had excellent reviews on goodreads.com I am thoroughly enjoying “Escape from the Land of Snow”.


Gerard and Eileen Talty founded Wild Irish Sea Veg in 2009, following a family tradition of seaweed harvesting for many generations. The family have now over 15 products and retail all over Ireland and online overseas.

Along with Dillisk and Atlantic Wakame and Sea Kelp, sushi lovers can enjoy Nori and pasta lovers can indulge in some sea spaghetti. Of course Carrigeen, a much used desert and treatment for colds and flu, is also available.

Recipes also available.

I can highly recommend the Seaweed Bath option which makes the skin feel great. My friend says it also greatly improved her Psoriasis.  Brid
