Galway’s leading local supermarket, with five locations throughout the county, will host two evening celebrations of local food and international wines this month. The evenings, which are in aid of Pieta House, will see celebrity chef Neven Maguire on hand to give top cooking tips and specialised cooking demonstrations using fresh produce from Joyce’s and its suppliers.
“We are passionate about local fresh food at Joyce’s and this event brings together over 40 local suppliers from all our stores," said Pat Joyce. "They will be showcasing their produce to our customers. The evenings are not just about food, we want to raise funds for Pieta House who are doing such great work in communities across Galway and throughout Ireland. We are a local business that employs over 330 people in Galway, we work with local suppliers and believe in bringing local to our customers.”
The food and wine food festival will take place over two nights — in The Ardilaun hotel, Galway, on Thursday June 18, and in the Raheen Woods Hotel, Athenry, on Friday June 19. The food and wine celebration will take place from 6pm to 10pm, with everyone receiving a goodie bag on the evening and the chance to win artisan food hampers.
Tickets, which are €5, are on sale now in Joyce's Athenry, Headford, Knocknacarra, Tuam, and Indreabhán, with all proceeds going to Pieta House, Preventing Suicide and Self Harm.
