The Kingfisher Bar and Bistro at the Celtic Ross Hotel, Rosscarbery, under Head Chef Alex Petit, has received an AA Award for Culinary Excellence.

The AA has been awarding Rosettes since 1955. This scheme is an award, not a classification, recognising exceptionally high standards in culinary excellence demonstrated by AA Accredited properties across Ireland and the UK. The aim of the Rosette system is to provide reliable information for all patrons about where to eat.

AA Rosettes are internationally recognised and all participants are featured in the AA’s annual restaurant guide and featured on the AA Ireland and AA UK websites. Properties displaying the AA symbol have been assessed to a very high standard.

Originally from Brittany, Northern France and boasting a wonderful Gallic west cork accent, Alex Petit became executive Head Chef of the Celtic Ross Hotel in 2014. With his task being to revolutionise the culinary experience for guests and customers of this traditional hotel, Alex has succeeded in winning the hearts and bellies of loyal customers while building a new following thanks to honourable mentions in renowned guides including John and Sally Mc Kenna’s guide and the AA hotel guide.

Alex’s style of cooking is timeless and enduring. Inspired by his travels and his French roots, he is constantly developing fresh concepts, becoming a main influencer in the West Cork culinary market. Alex Petit’s cooking ethos: Locally sourced ingredients, supporting small producers, respect of the product, freshness and consistency.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
