Fianna Fáil Councillor, John Paul Feeley has warmly welcomed the
inclusion of West Cavan and the award winning Neven Maguire as past of
the promotion of Ireland on NBC’s broadcast of the St. Patrick’s Day
Parade in New York.
‘Failte Ireland are sponsoring coverage of the New York Parade in a
live broadcast across NBC reaching millions of American views. Not
only will this showcase the activities of the Irish abroad and the
festivities in New York it will also include five segments promotion
Ireland as a tourist destination.’
One of the five segments will promote Culinary Ireland and will
feature Neven Maguire in his award winning restaurant MacNean House in
Blacklion including his many local high quality suppliers and the
magnificent scenery of West Cavan and the surrounding counties
including the features of the UNESCO Marble Arch Global Geopark.
‘Ireland has a unique opportunity with our National Holiday more
widely celebrated abroad than at home. We get to showcase our country
in a special way and I congratulate Failte Ireland on this initiative.
I also congratulate Neven Maguire on being chosen to represent the
very best on our food and hospitality industry and in so doing
highlighting our region also.’
