I’m very excited to be bringing Urban Food Fest back for 2017, it’s a lot of work for us but I know it’ll be so worth it come September 1st! Here’s the release we issued with all the details. One of those beautiful children is mine too! >>>
Pigtown Urban Food Fest at the Milk Market on Friday evening September 1st is the opening event of the Pigtown Food & Culture Series, a two-month long celebration of Limerick’s pig heritage with food, cultural and family events. See pigtown.ie for full listings.

Following its enormous success last year, when an unprecedented 6,000 people turned out for the event ran by Limerick Food Group, Urban Food Fest will once again transform the historic Limerick Milk Market into a street food mecca as local producers, market traders, restaurants, and hotels come together for a unique Limerick food event. This time it’s a ‘Pigtown edition’ to celebrate the start of the Pigtown Culture & Food Series. Continue reading
LAUNCH DAY! My new project has been launched to whet our appetites for Limerick food and local dining. Eat in Limerick, supported by GGL Security and LEO, is a personal project after seeing a need to bring the local food scene together and serve it up under one tasty promotional umbrella.

I felt we needed a foodie guidemap for Limerick City, there are so many new eateries even locals can’t keep up with happenings, not to mention trying to inform visitors. That’s how Eat in Limerick came about; it was a case of needs must. We have great food heritage here and increasing numbers of local producers so something like this was needed to bring attention to all of that.
Limerick company GGL Security, who operate nationally and internationally and have headquarters in Limerick City, is the main sponsor of the project. Contributing to the launch press release, Derek Tobin, MD of GGL Security, commented: “We are spoiled in Limerick with such a selection of food businesses, there must be 120 food businesses listed on the Eat in Limerick city map. As a Limerick business too, GGL Security is delighted to support this initiative which I’ve no doubt will encourage us all to explore our city and county even more and visit some new eateries.”
Social media users are being encouraged to use the hashtag ’#eatinlimerick‘ on facebook, instagram and twitter to highlight how much is going on in Limerick food, from casual, healthy and gourmet dining, to homegrown produce. Continue reading
