Cel­e­brat­ing the power of con­nec­tion

In a new se­ries with Green & Black’s, we send cou­ples to spend qual­ity time with each other ( and a ham­per of Green & Black’s choco­late) to ex­pe­ri­ence the true value of find­ing time to re­con­nect

David Quinn and Jean- Marc Pil­laud have been to­gether since 2001 and were mar­ried in 2016. Pil­laud is orig­i­nally from the south of France and came to Dublin in 2000. Quinn is orig­i­nally from Mon­aghan, and they both now live and work in Dublin city cen­tre.

Although the Dublin- based cou­ple spend lots of time to­gether dur­ing the week and at week­ends, they say they have truly learned what “qual­ity time” means for them af­ter a two- night stay in Magher­in­tem­ple Lodge in Co Antrim.

They made the most of this “beau­ti­ful house”, as well as vis­it­ing nearby sights like the Gi­ant’s Cause­way on their week­end on the north­ern coast, all the while en­joy­ing some of the lat­est range of prod­ucts from Green & Black’s.

We got up early on Satur­day and went into Bal­ly­cas­tle and had an Ul­ster fry – that was great. Then we drove to the Car­rick- a- Rede rope bridge and to the Gi­ant’s Cause­way. We had both re­ally wanted to go to the Gi­ant’s Cause­way as both of us had never been be­fore and the rope bridge was so much fun.

On Satur­day it rained from the minute we got up un­til the next day, re­ally, but we didn’t care. We had a laugh about it. We were go­ing to go to a restau­rant for din­ner but we en­joyed the lodge so much that we just wanted to go back to it. So we got a take­away and it was just nice to be there with that and the Green & Black’s and not have to cook. It was lovely.
