KELLY’S AMERICAN ROADSIDE DINER IS THE BEST THIS SIDE OF THE ATLANTIC!

first_imgNot content with recent accolades such as ‘’best value in Letterkenny’’, Mairtin and the team at Kelly’s Mountaintop Complex reminded us of the extraordinary efforts they go to, in order to keep their menus current, interesting and above all best value. The all new American Roadside Diner has been reinvigorated to incorporate an American theme throughout, from the spacious layout of its seating area through to the all-important menu, which now features selections such as the New Yorker Burger (go on, try finish it) and Louisana Chicken.Our ultra-important regular clientele need not be disappointed however, all of our old favourite classic dishes remain, as does the ‘’couldn’t cook it for it’’ price promise! Pressed on the newest additions, Diner Manager Leah McNulty said, ‘’We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our offering, and we know too well that to stay ahead of the pack we need to be as diverse as possible, so our customers stay both engaged and satisfied, not forgetting the need to remain competitive’’.Opening the colourful menu will appeal to almost any palette, considering the now famous Saturday steak deals, Sunday lunches and unbeatable breakfasts remain ever present, but more impressive is the vast selection of choices to choose from, and yet every meal is cooked to order, fresh from the kitchen.‘’Don’t forget we still allow 30% on sterling and sitting only 20 mins from the borders of Derry and Tyrone, we can guarantee better value than our Northern counterparts’’, McNulty added.The complex still houses an in-store bakery, butchery dept., off-licence and in keeping with today’s health conscious society, the fresh and healthy foods dept. has also been expanded. There’s a DVD kiosk for the film buff, a laundrette for the busy professional and home heating oil available on a cash & carry basis, it really is Letterkennys original ‘’1-stop-shop’’.They’ve even purchased a new catering trailer which will soon be popping up around the county when festival season gets underway, plus it’s available for hire at private events & functions.But don’t take our word for it, get yourselves down to the first American Roadside Diner in the North West and see for yourself.I recommend the New Yorker! 🙂 KELLY’S AMERICAN ROADSIDE DINER IS THE BEST THIS SIDE OF THE ATLANTIC! was last modified: May 21st, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:American Roadside DinerBusinessFeaturesKellysnewslast_img read more

PERFORMANCE CAMP LAUNCHED FOR YOUNG DONEGAL GOLFERS

first_imgYoung golfers in Donegal are being given a major opportunity to improve their game at a unique golf camp which will be held in Letterkenny over Easter.The Junior Golf Camp, which is being run by Core Pro Fitness Institute, is the first of its kind in the North West and will give aspiring young golfers the chance to improve all aspects of their game, both physically and mentally.Speaking about the camp, which will be held at Core Pro Fitness Institute and Rosapenna Golf Club from the 25th April, Tommy Gallagher, Director of Golf Fitness at Core PFI said: “The course that we have developed replicates what the world’s top golfers are now doing and aims to develop not just the young golfer’s swing, but all aspects of the game including physical performance, mental toughness and nutritional requirements”. The three day camps are now fully subscribed, so due to overwhelming demand extra one day camps have been added to the schedule.The students will have their swing and physical ability assessed at Core Pro Fitness Institute.  This forms the basis for their personalised training plan which will be implemented throughout the day.There is an option of spending an extra day at Rosapenna Golf Resort, where the young hopefuls take part in further swing analysis using the state of the art Trackman Combine.  This is then followed by a round of golf on one of Rosapenna’s courses.Talking about his decision to develop the course for younger players, Tommy explained “technical ability, physical fitness and mental agility have become the mainstay of any serious golfer in the modern era, and there is a general recognition in all sports that these disciplines need to be worked on from an early age. This camp, which is run by our own Titleist Performance Institute and PGA Professionals, aims to develop these skills and who knows, it may act as a stepping stone for the next Brian McElhinney or Rory McIlroy”.The One Day Easter Junior Golf Camp begins on Monday 25th April and is open to  11-18 year olds.For further information or to book a place on the camp check out www.coreprofitness.com, call Core PFI on 074 9168788 or email info@coreprofitness.comENDSPERFORMANCE CAMP LAUNCHED FOR YOUNG DONEGAL GOLFERS was last modified: April 12th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:junior golf camp Donegallast_img read more

first_imgVeteran Irish rockers Bagatelle are set to play their final tour 38 years after their humble beginning.Bagatelle, who have inspired U2 and shared the stage with Bob Marley, bring their “One for the Road Tour” to An Grianan Theatre in Letterkenny on Friday October 20th.Tickets are on sale now at www.angrianan.com/event/bagatelle This is one gig you won’t want to miss, and we’ve got FOUR tickets to give away to one lucky winner!How to enter:To win, all you have to do is CLICK HERE to visit our Facebook page and like and share the status.Alternatively, you can email your entry by sending your NAME under the email subject line BAGATELLE LETTERKENNY to donegalcompetitions@gmail.comIt could be you and three friends enjoying classics like Summer in Dublin this Friday: “It’s been an emotional roller coaster of a year since we decided to call it a day after 39 years touring”, Bagatelle’s Ken Doyle said recently.One of two existing original band members, bass guitarist Ken Doyle, has mixed emotions about ‘retirement’. While thoroughly enjoying playing live and the audiences “making the hairs stand on his head”, he admits that he is “just getting too road weary”.Bagatelle travelled far and wide bringing their music to audiences in Europe, America, the Middle East and China, as well as in Ireland. Their hit Second Violin was such a success in Uruguay that it’s still played there today.Over the years, the band has had various changes of members, but, currently it has four main performers – pianist Ken, lead vocalist Liam Reilly, drummer Seanie Devitt and lead guitarist Kurt Schefter.The group, dominated by the superb piano playing and songwriting ability of front man Reilly, broke up for a while but reformed in 1992. Since then, they have been performing non-stop. The lads have come a long way since the early days Bagatelle have shared the stage with the likes of Bob Marley, Van Morrison, U2, Thin Lizzy, Don McLean and The Pogues, but Flight of Earls has become one of the most popular Irish emigration songs, while their 1978 hit Summer in Dublin has become one of Irish rock’s iconic songs.“We were just a band, playing a few songs with no plan and no real expectation. We just got together to play a few songs and drink a few beers because we like music. Our success over the years was simply a happy accident,” Ken said.Bagatelle were playing in a small stone cellar venue in Dublin when they were approached afterwards by John Woods, the managing director of Polygram Records who treated them to a burger, chip and Coke after their gig and offer them a record deal.Ken Doyle remember John Woods saying to him “there was four lovely young lads came into my office from Dublin and they said to me if you give us a chance, we could be as big as Bagatelle”. That was U2,” laughs Ken.
