Festival Ambassador – Máirin Uí Chomain

Connemara native Máirín Uí Chomáin has been associated with the festival since the beginning. She is a former chair of the Irish Food Writers’ Guild and holds an honorary MA from NUI Galway in recognition of her commitment to home economics. She is the author of Irish Oyster Cuisine (2004), Irish Mussel Cuisine (2011), Celebrating Irish Salmon (2013), and, with Michael O’Meara, Oyster Gastronomy (Artisan House, 2017).


We would like to express our thanks to Dermot O’Donovan and GMIT’s National Centre of Excellence for Furniture Design and Wood Technology, Letterfrack for making and sponsoring the gifts of appreciation for our chefs.
