It’s a big state, Cork is the biggest county, people think we talk funny, there’s loads of cows, and subsequently loads of cowboys. Also, much like Cork, Texans will go out of their way to be kind, and to make a person feel welcome.
I began working with a group called Food Not Bombs at age 14 in Dallas. This is where my interest in vegan food, combating food waste, and fighting poverty began. I was lucky enough to work with Food Not Bombs all over the US, Canada, Mexico, and Guatemala.
I moved to Ireland in 2006 to study Permaculture, the philosophy of sustainable design, in Kinsale. This is where I met my now husband, Donal O’Gara, and together with Fiona Gannon, we started My Goodness in 2014. The permaculture principles that we learned about in Kinsale, Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Shares are the foundation of our business ethos.
My Goodness is a vegan, gluten free food company located in the English Market. We celebrate Ireland’s greatest natural resource, rain, by making delicious probiotic drinks from it.
My friends back in Austin laugh about how only a Texan could sell rainwater to the Irish.
