Demo & Dine 2013 Photos & Video
Our Demo & Dine evening on March 22nd was a great success. Many thanks to everybody who attended and all those from Knockmealdown Active who volunteered on the night to make sure everything ran smoothly. Host, JJ Healy, entertained everyone for the evening as well as creating some exceptional dishes. He was ably assisted by TJ Crowe from Crowe’s Organic Meats in Dundrum and the dessert maker extraordinaire, Eileen Condon from Newcastle.
Congratulations to all those who won prizes in the raffle, too numerous to mention. Special congratulations go to Laura Shine who won the coveted ‘Tasting Meal for Two’ at the Old Convent Gourmet Hideaway restaurant in Clogheen. This is something we know she will very much enjoy. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dermot & Christine Gannon at the Old Convent for their very generous gesture in offering this much sought after Door Prize along with all those who donated prizes for the raffle – there were plenty of excellent offerings from which to choose.
Everybody went home having had a wonderful evening’s entertainment, an excellent meal to finish off proceedings and many people also left with some excellent raffle prizes to show for their evening out.
Finally, many thanks to JJ Healy, TJ Crowe and Eileen Condon for putting on such an excellent, entertaining and appetising display.
Below you will find some photos and video from the evening’s entertainment. The videos take some time to upload so you’ll find they will be added gradually over the coming days.
