Leah’s Hits The TV Screen & Gets to Know the Irish President!

We’ve had a pretty exciting few weeks here at Leah’s Gourmet Foods from being featured on RTÉ television to meeting the Irish President himself!

Billy & I was interviewed for RTÉ’s Nationwide show where we discussed the business from its beginnings right through to present day where we’re now reaching marketplaces throughout Ireland.

Then as part of our selection as an InterTrade Ireland Food Ambassador, myself & Billy made the trip to Dublin to meet with President Michael D. Higgins at Áras an Uachtaráin.

We also got to meet the great and good of the political and business world here in Ireland at the Mansion House in Dublin where Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation, Richard Bruton hosted the event and we also met with Kerryman, football legend and local politician, Minister Jimmy Deenihan – a great event that saw us make some great connections for the future.
