The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - CLUB NEWS -

LIS­TOWEL Food Fair is de­lighted to an­nounce that Fran­cis Bren­nan-TV per­son­al­ity, suc­cess­ful au­thor and co-owner of the five star Park Ho­tel in Ken­mare is the re­cip­i­ent of the pres­ti­gious ‘Lis­towel Food Fair Life­time Achieve­ment Award’ for 2018.

Pre­vi­ous re­cip­i­ents were for­mer CEO of Kerry Group De­nis Bros­nan and food jour­nal­ist Ge­orgina Camp­bell. Chair­per­son of Lis­towel Food Fair, Jimmy Deeni­han said that ‘Fran­cis was cho­sen be­cause of his out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to the Ir­ish Hos­pi­tal­ity Sec­tor for the past 30 years. He has been a great Am­bas­sador not only for Ken­mare and Kerry but also for Ire­land. The suc­cess of the Park Ho­tel is very much based on the culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence that the guests en­joy there. Fran­cis has al­ways put par­tic­u­lar em­pha­sis on us­ing lo­cally pro­duced food in­clud­ing beef, lamb, pork, cheese and veg­eta­bles on his res­tau­rant menu. He has re­cently pro­duced a food sup­pli­ers map to en­able guests at his ho­tel to visit in­di­vid­ual farms to see at first hand where the food on the ho­tel menu came from. This is trace­abil­ity brought to a new level. Fran­cis is one of the most ad­mired and loved TV per­son­al­i­ties in Ire­land at this time. Ken­mare and Kerry are for­tu­nate that Fran­cis de­cided to make our county his home over thirty years ago.
