A little bit about Terry McCoy…

“A life well lived” could easily be used to describe Terry McCoy’s journey through life thus far. Terry has been a chef for more than 50 years. He has been lucky enough to travel the world and earn a living from cooking through his passion for food. Along the way, Terry has represented Ireland in international cooking competitions and appeared in several cookery programmes on TV including “Pot Luck” and “Ready, Steady, Cook”.

In the early 1980’s, Terry established the Red Bank Restaurant in Skerries, Co. Dublin along with his late wife Margaret. They specialised in seafood in the former bank premises and the Red Bank restaurant became a critically acclaimed destination venue of choice for the discerning diner. Terry McCoy was firmly on the map.

Since settling in Skerries, Terry McCoy has been fascinated by the story of St. Patrick and the legends associated with him. Together now with good friends Fergus Gannon (The Goat’s Cheese) and Joe Shannon, together they have written Saint Patrick’s Plate, Food inspired by the Saint and his Saga… We’d love you to buy a copy!
