Discover ITT Runner Up Trophy

As part of Kerry Entrepreneurship month , students at ITT Tralee get a chance to pitch their innovative ideas with a view to turning them into a successful business.

As a finalist, I came second with my business idea and I am thrilled.

I have been a chef in the beautiful picturesque Dingle for many years, and ran my own successful café in the town for many years prior to that.

blas na farraige shellfish stocckI love cooking seafood and shellfish, and this is where I got my idea for my product – Blas Na Farraige Shellfish Stock.

My product is a beautiful stock made from the shells of crabs and prawns predominantly.

The waste shells are then returned to De Brun Iasc Teo who make compost from the shells .

My target market will be retail, restaurants and general public with the potential to export globally.

My business story is one of sustainability.

I would not have achieved this award without the support of my partner, my family, the lecturers at I.T Tralee and Breda O’ Dwyer CEED.

I cannot thank the college enough for the support I have received over the past 4 years .
