Irish Ambassador Adrian O’Neill and his wife Aisling welcomed Michael Creed TD, Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, Food and Marine, Tara McCarthy CEO, and Michael Carey, Chairman of Bord Bia, to the Annual Trade reception at the Embassy of Ireland in London recently.

Ambassador O’Neill welcomed guests from Food and Hospitality Industries and confirmed his support for Irish priorities and concerns in relation to international trade. Britain is still Ireland’s main importer of Irish food products.
