Fishwives Cookery Book


We should not limit our challenges but challenge our limits.


Earlier this year I challenged those around me to help put a recipe book together in four months and we luckily achieved our goal.  The end result is a beautiful fish recipe book called Fishwives, available now in our online shop. All  profits from the sale of the book will be going to the wonderful Hospice Africa working out in Uganda. They will be channeled through Hospice Africa Ireland, a board in Ireland which fund raises and supports Hospice Africa Uganda. See www.hospiceafrica.ie for more information.

Looking back on it now I suggest it was interesting, and overcoming the challenge certainly made my life meaningful.

I now look on to the next challenge and it is to ensure that every household in the country has a copy of this book under their tree this Christmas.

Fishwives Cookery Book


I challenge you to help me make this a reality.

Fishwives Themed Get Together

Why not have a Fishwives themed get together with friends and family, cook something from the book or simply encourage them to purchase the book on the night – a bit like a tuperware party only cooking with fish.

Or perhaps you have a database of foodies or friends interested in cooking who might like a very special and unique book as a present. Would it help that all proceeds are going to a very worthy cause?

We will give free product to anyone willing to put their shoulder to the wheel and our staff are happy to travel the length and breadth of the country to be part of your event. All ideas welcome.

My sister Miriam Donohoe has spent 8 months on the ground in Kampala working with the hospice organisation and reported back first-hand the work being carried out daily to help relieve pain and suffering of those with no access to pain relief in their dying days . We are all weary of the bad media around so called charitable organisations but it does not mean we have to stop caring and become totally cynical. I know for sure where every single penny of the money raised form this project will go.

Come on folks, life is not all about getting and having. How about giving and being?
