Front Page

TV chef Donal Skehan is on a mission to find Ireland’s best banana dessert. Pictured helping him launch the initiative are  Ellie Connor (9) and her brother Ryan (7).

Banana importers Fyffes has issued an invitation to mums, dads and children throughout Drogheda, Louth and beyond to join in a search to find Ireland’s ‘Best Banana Dessert’ creation. 

Fronting the search to find this year’s winning creations is Ireland’s well-known TV cook, Donal Skehan whose programmes are a favourite with viewers and wannabe cooks. 

The popular presenter hopes to repeat the success of last year, when his task was to judge Ireland’s most creative banana bread bakers. 

Reward will go to the overall winner and best junior baker with recognition for originality in a number of other areas.
