Faces of the Food Trail: Mary Luthers, Bluebell Organic Farm

There is a tantalising incongruity between the exotic details of Mary Luthers’ early life and the last few decades spent in a rural idyll in the northwest of Ireland. Her grandfather, an Anderson from Calry in Sligo spread his wings wide and pursued a career abroad marrying a French woman; ‘Granny Lily’ to the young Mary. Their son, Mary’s father, also worked abroad and even brought his young family to India for a few years, where her culinary world journey began.

Faces of the Food Trail: Eithna O’Sullivan, Eithna by the Sea, Mullaghmore

It’s rare to find an iconic restaurant which over the best part of two decades has remained fresh, vibrant and at the top of its game. Eithna’s by the Sea on Sligo Food Trail is one such pearl, no wonder it won Seafood Restaurant of the Year just two years ago. Talking with its eponymous owner, Eithna O’Sullivan, is as invigorating as a brisk walk by the sea itself. She retains all her enthusiasm and passion for creating good food and has accumulated more experience of food, cooking, restaurants and food service than an entire Masterchef kitchen!
