If you are looking for a nice way to get into the festive spirit, why not book yourself a treat? The National Dairy Council and North Cork Creameries are organising a special evening focusing on health and wellbeing on Thursday 7th December. The evening will take place in the Edel Quinn Hall in Kanturk, Co Cork with MC Colm O’Sullivan from Red FM. A great night is promised, with refreshments, a raffle and a free gift bag for all who attend.

Speakers for the event will include renowned Dietician Paula Mee, who has appeared on numerous TV and radio shows and has a clinic in Blackrock, Dublin; Former Munster and Ireland rugby international Alan Quinlan who will discuss his own experiences with mental health. Ireland’s most versatile Chef Brian McDermott will be cooking up a storm with some delicious festive recipes.
