Posted by Kinsale Advertiser on 28 May 2012

Congratulations to John McGrath & Frank Walsh from the West Bar in Westport, winners of the 2nd Annual National Chowder Cook-Off, held on the grounds of Acton’s Hotel, Kinsale on Sunday 27th May.

The competitors, made up of chefs, fishermen and commercial chowder producers travelled from all 32 counties of Ireland to participate in the Cook-Off, where members of the public were the judges. On entry each received a voting card which allowed them to sample all chowders from the individual stalls and cast their vote to crown Ireland’s Nation Chowder Champion 2012.
