Midsummer Coney Island Experience 24th June 2017

Midsummer seaweed experience on Coney Island with launch of Seaweed poster by Dr Prannie Rhatigan.

Seaweed has always been a Superfood in Sligo. Learn to identify Irish edible seaweeds for yourself! All age groups will enjoy this culinary adventure to Coney Island starting and finishing at Trá Bán Restaurant in Strandhill.

First Dr Prannie Rhatigan leads a walk and talk along the seashore introducing the fascinating world of edible seaweed and how to identify and harvest them. With appetites well whetted, join Anthony Gray of award-winning Trá Bán Restaurant for a delicious lunch of local Lissadell mussels cooked on an open fire with freshly baked bread from My Strandhill Bakery.

Now in its 6th year – this is always a sell-out event and has been attended by John and Sally McKenna and a host of others from Ireland’s culinary echelons over the years. Join us on Saturday 24th June 2017 and you never know who you will meet.
