Faces of the Sligo Food Trail: David Dunne, Knox

If you’d asked David Dunne age 15 what he was going to do with the rest of his life, chances are he’d have told you he was going to be a golf professional on the European Tour. A 30 year old David might have said he was building a nice career in corporate finance and expecting to stay there.

Faces of the Sligo Food Trail: Paul Monaghan, FEED Café, Sligo Folk Park, Riverstown

Paul Monaghan’s route to running his own food business was unorthodox to say the least.

It was where she was drawn to for a first foray into her own food business.

Faces of the Sligo Food Trail: Adrian Sheerin, Sheerin’s Meatin’ Place

The ordinary limitations of time just don’t seem to apply to Adrian Sheerin from Sheerin’s Meatin’ Place; it seems like he has somehow negotiated more than 24 hours in each day. Calling it a superpower might be a step too far but it certainly enables him to cram a remarkable amount in! Butcher, husband, father, athlete, biker, cook and enthusiastic gourmand all apply to this energetic Ballymote man. 6am starts, early morning runs more often than not, a couple of nights a week training with the athletics club and a new found interest in swimming and triathlon are all just elements of an astonishingly busy life!
