In what will be one of the first big events of the year, the Longford Slashers GAA club have announced details of a Neven Maguire Food demonstration and Fayre, to take place in the Longford Arms Hotel on February 20.
The event is a club fundraiser to support the Camogie, Hurling, Ladies football, Minor football and senior clubs and tickets are now on sale at €20 each. The event will get underway at 8pm sharp.
Neven Maguire is one of the country’s most popular chefs and it is understood that he is eagerly looking forward to the Longford event. It is being supported by Bord Bia and Flogas whilst the main sponsors are Rosderra Meats, where the chief executive is local man and chairman of Longford Town FC, Jim Hanley.
In addition to the cookery demonstration there will also be a food fayre with several of the leading local food suppliers and producers likely to feature. The Blacklion based chef has a very popular TV series and his easy going style and straightforward recipes ensure that his demonstration evenings are always very popular.
Tickets are now on sale at €20 each and are available from any member of the Slashers Club or from the Backstage theatre and the Longford Arms Hotel.
