About Cong Food Village

This Initiative is a celebration of all Cong has to offer as a top food destination. It’s a movement with a true community heart run by a voluntary committee of people who are passionate about food –  growing it, making it, cooking it, sharing it and eating it!

Cong Food Village’s aim is to inform and educate our community (particularly the young people in our community) on good quality food and where it comes from and to put Cong on the map as a good quality food destination.

Committee Members: Jonathan Keane (Chairperson), Mairead Geehan (Festival Coordinator),  (Mike Crowe (Treasurer), Paddy Rock (Novelty Games) & Ray McHugh (Site Manager)
