About Us

The inaugural Listowel Food Fair was originally developed and organised by then local TD and former Minister Jimmy Deenihan, along with Johanna Watkins, Sheila Broderick, John O’Connor, Ella O’Sullivan, Frank Pierse and Brid McElligott. Their hard work was continued by numerous dedicated local people. Over the past 25 years, the event has grown in prestige and is now firmly established as one of the premier food fairs on the Irish Calendar.


Listowel Food Fair would like to acknowledge and thank the on-going support of committed and valued sponsors and partners Bord Bia, Kerry County Council, Kerry Group, LEO, Garvey’s SuperValu, Spar Listowel, Plassey Foods, Listowel Credit Union, Listowel Military Tattoo, McGuires Pharmacy, the Listowel Traders and the local community.
