Notes from Melanie Harty

Another busy month for Harty’s

Early May found us attending the Bank of Ireland Enterprise evening in Tralee Sports & Leisure Centre, alongside a variety of business operators showcasing their wares. What a great turnout, we networked with new and exciting entrepreneurs and caught up with lots of our old friends. It was a huge success and very well attended, a great opportunity to support eachother and promote community spirit. Of course it was a pleasure to have a chat with Mr Gavin Duffy as well.

Next we were back at The Kingdom County Fair, held at Ballybeggan Racecourse, Tralee. This was the first event I, as Harty’s, ever attended outside of my local markets. We were delighted then, 2010, to receive rosettes for our jellies and scones.

We have continued to attend and again this year we were thrilled to find we were The Winner of the Indoor Stand on the day. This event has been part of my life for years as being a farmer’s daughter we always looked forward to getting dressed up and going to ‘The Show’ as we called it.

It is with great pride that I continue to attend both as a participant and an exhibitor, hopefully this will continue long into the future.

Following on from this, we were delighted to be invited by Kilcornan School, Co. Limerick to attend a Nevin Maguire demonstration in The Dunraven Arms in the beautiful village of Adare, in Limerick. The location was perfect as it was a most beautiful summers evening for such an occasion. Kerry was very supportive of this event as we had O’Donnells Granola from Killorglin, Harty’s Tralee and Dingle Distillery in attendanace.

Fully supported by the locals meant a full house with lots of chat with Nevin and of course a little libation complements of Dingle Gin.  As always a very informative evening with Nevin, I continually learn something new when watching his work.

And of course we continue to be found in many Supervalu’s throughout Kerry and Cork so watch out for us and stop for a chat.
