Neven’s new series visits Clew Bay

Posted in Connect on January 3, 2019.

NEVEN Maguire returns to our screens in the new year with a brand new seven part series of his hugely popular Food Trails programmes.

Neven’s Irish Seafood Trails is his first series dedicated to seafood. His journey around Ireland takes him to Mayo,Cork, Donegal, Sligo, Kerry, Galway, Dublin, and Kilkenny, as he discovers the very best of Irish seafood and braves some choppy waters!

In the first episode, Neven heads to Mayo. His first stop is stunning Clew Bay where the pristine waters offer the perfect environment in which to grow mussels.

Neven takes a boat out into the bay to meet Michael Mulloy, a mussel farmer, who shows Neven how it’s done, and treats him to some mussels cooked on board.

Back on dry land, Neven visits Knockranny House Hotel in Westport where head chef Seamus Commons shares a recipe for Haddock and Bon Bons.

Venturing south, Neven visits Ireland’s only fjord at Killary, where a boat trip is the best way to explore the beautiful scenery.

Neven then calls in at the intriguingly named Misunderstood Heron food truck for a freshly made fish pasty. To end his Mayo seafood adventures, he returns to Clew Bay and a choppy sea to visit the Clare Island Organic Salmon Farm.

To complete this first programme Neven prepares delicious salmon burgers.

The programme will be screened on Wednesday, January 9, on RTÉ One, at 8.30 p.m.(tbc).

Neven’s Irish Seafood Trails is produced and directed by David Hare for InproductionTV and is sponsored by Bord Bia.
