The mysterious mushroom
A KildareNow reader emailed us a photo of an unusual mushroom she found growing while walking in the Curragh.
She said: "I didn't recognise what it is.
"Is it a puffball? I thought they grow bigger like footballs in some places.
"It's even a bit early in the summer for mushrooms, I thought August and September were the best times.
"Can somebody tell me if I can eat it?
Can anybody help?
