Meet the Team

Eilish McLoughlin

General Manager & Head Chef.

"I graduated from Fermanagh College of Further Education in 1986 with a City and Guilds qualification in Culinary Arts. In the 80s it was common practice for young graduates to emigrate in search of work and new experiences so I headed off to London. I lived there for 5 years, working in and studying the food industry and gaining valuable experience. I loved London and still return to visit whenever I can, but my heart was at home in Co. Longford.

My culinary skills were well developed by 1999 so I embarked on a course of study in Catering Management and 2001 I also completed a NVQ Level 3 Patisserie and Confectionery course under the guidance of Neven Maguire.

In 2003, I built a HSE certified kitchen and started up my outdoor & events company called Dial a Chef Catering Ltd. Over the past 17 years, it has grown steadily and is now a key employer in the North Longford area."
