While watching Neven Maguires cookery programme on television last week, it was lovely to see a familiar local face pop up on screen. Chef Nicky Foley welcomed Neven to his tapas and wine bar in the centre of Dingle. Nicky demonstrated two separate fish dishes, pollock kievs and a lovely dish using beautiful fresh scallops. Neven Maguire remarked how he could listen to Nicky speaking all day and described him as a fantastic chef. Nicky is of course the son of Greta Foley, Ballyduff West and I’m sure she and all the family were watching in with great pride. We wish Nicky continued success.
Ballyduff GAA club will once again take part in the Ireland Lights Up campaign this year. The GAA in partnership with Operation Transformation and Get Ireland Walking have once again come together but have had to change things around this year due to obvious reasons. This year there is a double incentive to get involved. The club is joining the Irish Life app steps challenge so you are not just walking for your own physical and mental health but also to help out your club. The goal is to help your club walk the equivalent of 4000km over 8 weeks and when the club reaches its target they are entered into a draw for O Neill vouchers to be won for each province. Participants must be 18 years and over and there are just three simple steps to signing up. Step one is to download the app, step two register and step three select your challenge.
