WATCH: Limerick families! Join the search for Ireland's 'Best Banana Dessert’ creation

To mark National Banana Day on 21st April popular TV cook, Donal Skehan is on a mission to find Ireland’s best banana dessert creation that has a banana as a key ingredient.

Banana importers Fyffes has issued an invitation to mums, dads and children throughout Limerick and beyond to join in a search to find Ireland’s ‘Best Banana Dessert’ creation.

Fronting the search to find this year’s winning creations is Ireland’s well-known television cook, Donal Skehan, whose programmes are a favourite amongst viewers and wannabe cooks. 

The popular presenter hopes to repeat the success of last year, when his task was to judge Ireland’s most creative banana bread bakers.
