Ewen in his own words: My background is in music and the arts and I have spent a lot of time travelling over the years, but I've always been drawn back to the Irish North Coast. I grew up at White Park Bay and was lucky enough to experience the rich history, unique culture and gorgeous natural scenery first hand from an early age. I run various arts based events and initiatives in the town and am also a prominent member of the Ursa Minor bakery team, who specialise in fresh, ethical, local food.
Ewen in my words:I am delighted to have Ewen guide for Irish Feast. He's knowledgeable, friendly, a genuine rock star (Axis of and Catalan Catalan Catalan), and has a deep rooted love of food, history and local culture. If Ewen is your guide, you'll have a great time!
Jill in her own words: I am originally from County Down but moved to North Antrim some thirty years ago and now live, with my husband, close to Portrush. I have recently retired from the library service which has given me a little more time to enjoy and introduce others to the local coastal area here.
Jill in my words: I've known Jill for a long time as she used to be a librarian in Ballycastle and had to regularly hunt me down to return books! She is a lovely lady with a great sense of humour and a wide knowledge of the Causeway Coast form. As she is a great cook and a fervent foodie, she's just perfect as a quietly intelligent guide who gets great reviews for Irish Feast.
Tak Ho Lo is a Chinese doctorate student from Hong Kong. He completed a year in the University of Ulster at Coleraine for his Food and Nutrition BSc and has now returned to complete his doctoral thesis here. He, too, is a passionate foodie who hopes to introduce more authentic Chinese cuisine to Northern Ireland.
Jude in her own words: My inspiration to become a tour guide was my Grandmother, Mary McNeill; a lady from the Glens, who had a love of history and the outdoors. I am a qualified Tour Guide and registered Tour Guide with Tour Guides NI as well as a qualified trainer, facilitator and mediator. I also hold a Bsc in Geography and Msc in Rural Development.
Jude in my words: Jude is a fabulously passionate guide, immersed in Northern Ireland local history and stories and, of course, very fond of good food! I am glad she works with Irish Feast on a regular basis.
