Our users are increasingly used to seeing the latest movies in high definition on their Smart TVs, consoles, and other devices, and now they can add their PC or laptop to this list too,” said Wuaki.tv founder and CEO, Jacinto Roca.
Mary Blake Tourism Officer with Council who is leading the local campaign said: “We are delighted that our bid is through to the shortlisted stage. Derry is galvanised under the ‘LegenDerry Food’ mantra, promoting exceptional quality and locally sourced food.“The ancient Walled City has many high quality and independently accredited restaurants along with quality cafes and delis.“Eminent food critics such as Georgina Campbell have claimed that we are now justifiably flagged as the North West’s Gourmet Capital.“Winning Foodie Town Ireland would be a real testament to the food revolution that has been taking place in our city over recent years.“Voting for Derry will support all our hardworking chefs, artisan food producers, fishermen, farmers, restaurateurs and hospitality staff.”Derry has been named among the top ten food destinations in Ireland and two independent assessors will now visit the city in the coming weeks to see what’s on the local menu.
