The inaugural Listowel Food Fair was originally developed and organised by then local TD and formally 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 23 years, the event has grown in prestige and is now firmly established as one of the premier food fairs on the Irish Calendar.
