An Grianan Heritage and Harvest Fair 27/08/2011

Ann-Marie Dennison
The ICA partnered again with Love Irish Food to celebrate national heritage week with their Harvest and Heritage Fair at An Grianan, Termonfeckin, Co Louth. Heritage, craft and local food producer stalls displayed a wonderful variety and North County Wicklow branch were there to represent us.

I spoke with ICA president Ann-Marie Dennison about the associations reinvention and how the perception that they had ceased to exist has been turned on its head. Enthusiasm and interest from public bodies, decision makers, sponsors, potential partners and general interest has grown and ICA Bootcamp has attracted a big following amongst the younger people. We may have a great deal to learn from their experiences, especially with our 70th anniversary looming.
