Published on May 22 2014 12:37 PM in General Industry
Voting is now open to the public for the All-Ireland Great Carvery Competition. Carvery fans, whatever their preferred cut of beef, are encouraged to cast their vote. Votes can be cast online and by text to help compile a final shortlist of the best establishments in all four provinces, with entries made in three different categories: Great Carvery Hotel of the Year, Great Carvery Pub of the Year and the newly introduced One-Day-Only Carvery. All of those shortlisted by the public will be in with a shot of being crowned Ireland’s Great Carvery of the Year 2014 at a grand final this September. Now in its fifth year, the all-island competition is firmly established as the premier carvery competition in Ireland and Northern Ireland’s culinary calendar. Entries have been stronger than ever for this year’s competition and, with registrations now closed, voting is open to the public who will have until Sunday, 8 June to cast their vote. Marking his third year running as the Great Carvery competition, ambassador Tommy Bowe said "Each year I look forward to getting involved with this contest and seeing the levels of innovation and dedication that each establishment employs in producing their outstanding carvery offerings. That there are such a wide range of entries from all across the island of Ireland comes as no surprise to me, and I am looking forward to seeing what the new One-Day-Only category throws up for the first time this year. The competition is sure to be as fierce as ever and I would urge the public to get their votes in by the June 8th deadline." The overall winning venues will each receive PR to the value of €2,500 and marketing support also valued at €2,000 for each venue. The winners’ prizes also include specially commissioned wall plaques to remind customers that they are about to sit down and enjoy the best carvery in Ireland.
