Last night, Neven Maguire was crowned Irish Food Producers’ Champion at the Dingle Food Festival, as a part of the Blas na hEireann awards. Artie Clifford, chairman and founder member of the Blas na Eireann committee, cited Maguires commitment and passion to Irish food as the reason for his award. Neven accepted the award with delight, saying “We want people abroad to recognise Ireland for the great food that we produce here. We have great chefs and hard working food promoters, but it all starts with our amazing food producers,” said Neven. “And that’s what awards like the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards are all about”. Well done Neven!
