Westmeath venues in running for all-Ireland carvery competition

If you like the food in the Greville Arms, Danny Byrne’s or Bloomfield House, you could help the staff who prepare it win an award in the 2014 All-Ireland Great Carvery competition.

Votes can be cast online and by text in three 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 final in September.

Entries have been stronger than ever for this year’s competition and, with registrations now closed, voting is open to the public until Sunday June 8.

Text the word HOTEL or PUB or ONEDAY, depending on category, followed by the name of the establishment to 51500.

Log on to www.greatcarvery.com/vote and follow the steps on screen.

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 prizes also include specially commissioned wall plaques to remind customers that they are about to sit down and enjoy the best carvery in Ireland.
