Good Food Ireland
Good Food Ireland

Having worked in the tourism industry for over 20 years, Margaret Jeffares identified a major gap and opportunity in the development of a strong food and tourism brand for the island of Ireland, linking Ireland’s 2 major industries – the agri/food sector and the tourism hospitality sector to drive economic growth and previously unexplored business opportunity. She set about developing an all island brand, with strict approval criteria, based on commitment to local food and launched her vision in November 2006. In the following months businesses meeting the criteria were brought on board behind the brand and in November 2007 Good Food Ireland with 70 founding providers was launched in Dublin by the Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism. Today Good Food Ireland markets its some 600 Approved Providers to international visitors and domestic consumers, using the Good Food Ireland brand as the consumer endorsement for consistently good local food, driving business to their doors.

Loftus Hall
Loftus Hall

Hook Head (Rinn Duáin) is a headland in County Wexford, Ireland, located on the east side of the estuary of the three sisters rivers (the Nore, Suir and the Barrow). It is part of the Hook peninsula and is adjacent to the historic townland of Loftus Hall. It is situated on the R734, 50 km from Wexford town. Hook Head is said to have found its way into common English usage in the saying “By Hook or by Crook.” It is claimed that the phrase is derived from a vow to take Waterford by Hook (on the Wexford side of the estuary) or by Crook (a village on the Waterford side) made by Oliver Cromwell.

Loftus Hall is a large mansion house on the Hook peninsula, County Wexford, Ireland. It is said to have been haunted by the devil and by the ghost of a young woman.

20130724untitled shoot-28197x132The Redmond family built the original house in 1350 during the time of the Black Death. It replaced their original castle at Houseland near Portersgate. The Hall became the property of the Loftus family in the 1650s as a result of the Cromwellian confiscations and this was confirmed after the Restoration of King Charles II of England by the Act of Settlement 1662.The building that exists today was heavily renovated between 1870 and 1879 by the 4th Marquess of Ely. In 1917 Loftus Hall was bought by the Sisters of Providence and turned into a convent and a school for young girls interested in joining the order. In 1983, it was purchased by Michael Deveraux who reopened it as “Loftus Hall Hotel”, which was subsequently closed again in the early 1990s.

The name ‘Loftus Hall’ is also applied to the townland surrounding the mansion. The entire townland of Loftus Hall, including the building itself, can be overlooked from Hook Lighthouse.
