THE Rebel County takes centre stage in the final episode of Neven’s Irish Seafood Trails on RTÉ1 on Wednesday at 8.30pm.
In Kinsale, chef Martin Shanahan of Fishy Fishy Restaurant explains to Neven Maguire why the town has become internationally renowned for its food and shares a simple take on a recipe for fish pie made with monkfish, salmon, hake and Dublin Bay prawns.
Neven also visits the National Maritime College of Ireland in Ringaskiddy to learn how maritime professionals prepare for life at sea, and meets Head of College Cormac Gebruers.
The presenter visits the training pool, the only one of its kind in Ireland, and sees the impressive equipment used for Helicopter Underwater Escape Training, as well as learning how waves and severe storm conditions can be created in the pool.
This is followed by a trip to the college’s 360 degree ship’s bridge simulator where Neven tries his hand at steering a ‘virtual’ trawler in a Force 9 storm.
Also in the episode , we join mussel producers Carl and Angela Daly of Kenmare Bay on a boat trip to see how they are farmed.
