The feel good factor is on as some of Ireland's best chefs club together, bringing an amazing food series to Kerry this November whilst donating valuable funds to St Vincent de Paul.

 

Chad Byrne, an Irish Chef of the Year who has masterminded the latest events, will be bringing some amazing food to Real Burger Killorglin with the help of some of Ireland's and the UK's hottest chefs.

"Each week one chef will take the reins with a Specials Board to create some inspiring, tasty, delicious food," Chad told the Killarney Advertiser.

"First up is Nick Reynolds of famed Caribbean/Jamaican restaurant Lil Portie in Rathmines in Dublin.
"We're delighted to have him on board. He'll create the dish online and we'll recreate it the following day for customers."

Currently Nick is on TV screens as the resident chef on 'Lodging with Lucy' on Virgin Media One.

Chad, who is Head Chef in The Brehon, and a director of Real Burger with Mohammad Anzi, worked with Nick on his Chef Collab project and also the Chef Beat Chef online competition during the first lockdown.

Nick said he is very much looking forward to it.

"I’ve done a few different projects with Chad over the years and they have always been so much fun with the food always being next level. I'm honoured he has asked me to be the first chef to feature. Expect spice, freshness and some jerk seasoning in my dish. I'll be cooking it on the Real Burger's social channels and will be available from Friday for the weekend with a Euro of each dish being sold to be donated to SVDP. I can't wait to bring some Jamaican love to Kerry."

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
