  • Slow Food Clare

John McKenna of this parish will be speaking at the second Slow Food Clare Festival in Lisdoonvarna this weekend, specifically on Friday lunchtime in the Pavilion Theatre in Lisdoonvarna, when the subject will be “Consumption with a Conscience” Whoa! Weighty stuff!
Let's hope McKenna doesn't tell that Homer Simpson joke again, the one that has died a million deaths on the last two occasions he has rolled it out to an unimpressed audience.

You can also catch McKenna at the West Cork Literary Festival, where he will be taking the Food Writing Workshop, between Monday 6th and Friday 10th of July. The five mornings cost €175, and you can expect to hear a lot about Richard Olney, amongst many others. Full details of how to book from
