Darina Allen was the guest of honour recently at the newly branded Laois TASTE group which hosted a big event in Portlaoise as part of a month of activities that showcase the amazing artisan produce in Laois.

A huge crowd gathered at the Killeshin Hotel, Portlaoise on Thursday, October 17 to enjoy the locally produced high-quality fare at a wonderful evening held in association with the Laois Local Enterprise Office (LEO), Laois County Council, Connect2Laois and Laois Partnership. The night featured a cookery demo by Cullohill native Darina Allen and Andrew Rudd.

The event also marked the official launch of the new Taste of Laois brand. Laois TASTE hosted a range of events during October to coincide with Failte Ireland’s Taste the Island Campaign.
