What’s happening in the Hub?
Hope you are all well and getting out into Spring, between the showers. Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh go léir.
We’re very excited to have kicked off our ‘Dingle Adapts’ Instagram Live series last Wednesday 10th March with our first guest Mark Murphy. We’re running this series to chat with and showcase businesses based on the Dingle Peninsula who support local and work in a sustainable way. We’re really interested to get insights into how these businesses started and evolved, how working with local suppliers has positively impacted their business and how they incorporate sustainability into their business and day-to-day work. We would love to encourage future partnerships and successful collaborations between businesses on the Dingle Peninsula and beyond. Follow us on socials to get info on upcoming guests. We’ll have chats every Wednesday at 7pm, love to see you there.
Our first guest, Mark Murphy, is originally from Co. Carlow and moved to Dingle (by accident) almost 20 years ago. Since moving here Mark has been a key member of the annual Dingle Food Festival and to help set the local farmers’ market. In 2014 both Muireann Nic Giolla Ruaidh and Mark started Dingle Cookery School, where it offers a range of classes suitable for both home cooks and professional cooks. In 2018 Mark took over The Little Cheese Shop in Dingle. Beloved by locals and visitors alike, The Little Cheese Shop in the heart of Dingle town showcases more than 50 varieties of diverse soft, semi-soft, hard and blue Irish cheeses. You can watch the chat back on our IGTV and Facebook pages.
Thosnaíomar lenár sraith IG Beoshruthathe, ‘Corca Dhuibhne ag dul in Oiriúint’ ar an gCéadaoin seo caite 10ú Márta le Mark Murphy ón siopa cáis. Tá an tsraith seo á chur ar siúl againn chun caint le gnónna dhuibhneach a thugainn tacaíocht iad fhéin go háitiúl agus a n-oibríonn ar shlí inmharthana. Tá suim faoi leith againn chun léargas a fháil faoi conas a thosnaigh na gnónna seo agus conas a d’fhorbair siad; an tionchar ar a ngnónna ‘s iad ag obair le soláthraithe áitiúla agus conas a chuireann siad inbhuanaitheacht san áireamh sa ghnó. Ba bhreá linn comhoibriú agus comhpháirtíocht idir gnónna i gCorca Dhuibhne. Lean Dingle Hub ar na meáin shóisialta chun a bheith ar an eolas faoin gcéad aoichaointeoir eile sa sraith seo agus faoi imeachtaí eile. Beidh IG beoshruthaithe againn gach Céadaoin ag a 7i.n.
