The Meehan Family Food Group have pledged to give their sponsorship and support to Newbridge’s June Fest for the next three years.
The sponsorship will carry through until 2020, with this year’s four-week week festival beginning on June 1 with the launch of the Yarn Bomb, where knitters take over the riverside park in the town.
June Fest is Ireland’s biggest community festival with live Music, Theatre, Cinema, Visual Arts, Race Day in the Curragh, a Family Fun day in St. Conleth’s GAA grounds.
Newbridge native Richard Meehan is delighted to bring his support to such a solid, grassroots community festival: "I’m delighted to sponsor June Fest and I’m looking forward to a great festival this year and on in 2019 and 2020. Delivering a festival of this size is a huge undertaking and one that I wish to personally support. I’ve seen the programme that’s being delivered this year and it’s going to be a high-quality event."
The Food Service group, which includes Dublin Food Sales, Cooke’s Catering supplies, Andrew Hepburn Food and Packaging recently acquired Scallan’s Food Services in Wexford. Dublin Food Sales distribute more than 4,500 lines of food, drink and packaging products into hotels, restaurants, takeaways, corporate and public sector bodies across Ireland.
