Pride of Place 2015

Here are some of the people who were in The Lartigue Museum on Tuesday Sept 1 2015 for the Pride of Place judging.

Prestige Foods supply hotels with these yummy desserts.

Prestige Foods

John Cronin of Cronin’s Cider  was giving out samples. It is delicious, fresh and refreshing. John promises that it will not give you a hangover as it is additive free. I’ll certainly be buying it on the basis of my first sample.

Eabha Jones with their goodies .

Helen and Armel of Allos had a very appetizing looking array of food on display on their beautifully styled table, a feast for the eye as well as the belly.

If, as folk wisdom says,  the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. I’d say Listowel certainly won the heart of the judges on Tuesday.

The minister was working so he declined to sample the cider. He stuck to tea.

These containers were covered in artistic graffiti. Maybe they will be again.

In town last week I ran into my friend, Cathy Healy and I persuaded her to pose for a photo with Eamonn Sullivan.
