WHAT an amazing two days we had at the Munster Food and Garden Show. West Limerick certainly came alive as hundreds of people arrived in Croagh. Demot Giltenane from D&M Garden Centre and Restaurant and his family were the people behind the weekend’s show.

I thought, personally, it was incredible for the area when you have the likes of the highly regarded gardening writer and broadcaster Monty Don from BBC. Also one of the country’s most loved cook’s, the talented and beautiful Rachel Allen and joining them was Munster’s favourite gardener Charlie Wilkins and no-salt chef Brian McDermott.

They really thought of everything and yours truly was there showcasing beautiful clothes from Isobel Boutique in Adare. There was food, craft people and drink companies and many more. Congratulations to all involved.

Next stop was No1 Pery Square where the Holman Lee Agency was invited to showcase fashionable Limerick with Conference Sport. We were also there to highlight Limerick as a key business tourism destination.

I was delighted to have been asked to do something like this as there is nothing more I enjoy than talking about the city, the style, the fashion and the long history we have in manufacturing and production. Everyone in attendance was extremely impressed with the beautiful clothes we showcased from designers to stores who have been the back bone of the fashion industry in the city, some of them for nearly 60 years.

Well done to Conference Sport for the efforts.

Chat to you next week.
