GREENSHINE is a Cork based family trio comprising Noel Shine, Mary Greene and their daughter Ellie. Their material straddles the boundaries of contemporary, folk and roots and includes many self-penned songs. The band is known for striking family harmonies and excellent musicianship. Noel is a multi-instrumentalist, turning his hand to guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, bouzouki and traditional whistle and this musical dexterity had seen him much in demand as a session and band player by artists as diverse as The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and funk and soul legends The Republic of Loose amongst many others. Mary brings rhythm guitar to the mix and her voice is a wonderfully versatile instrument. She has added her talents to the albums of Christy Moore, John Spillane, Mick Hanly and Frances Black as well as cult psychedelic outfit Dr. Strangely Strange. As a duo, Noel and Mary have released 3 critically acclaimed albums to date ~ The Land You Love the Best (placed no. 3 in The Irish Times Folk albums of the year of its release), Unspoken Lines (described as ‘The heart and soul of folk music, coming from a deeper well…,’ by John Spillane) while Mary’s solo, Sea of Hearts, earned an impressive 8 out of 10 in Hot Press.

Toons Bridge Dairy Macroom
Toons Bridge Dairy's founders, Toby Simmonds and Jenny-Rose Clarke, began their journey in the English Market of Cork City in 1993 where they established their original business, The Real Olive Company. Starting with a few barrels of olives, Toby and Jenny-Rose gradually expanded their range of products to include a vast range of high quality Mediterranean ingredients and delicacies. They now base themselves between Cork’s English Market and Toons Bridge Dairy, with market stalls and wholesale customers around the country.
When Toby and Jenny-Rose first started making Mozzarella, the market stalls were ideal for distributing their cheese as freshly as possible, and offered the perfect opportunity to get direct feedback from customers. Originally, Toby and Jenny-Rose had been importing Italian Mozzarella, but they found that by the time it got to Ireland, it wasn't as fresh as they would have liked. Mozzarella should always be eaten as freshly as possible, and so Toby and Jenny-Rose decided to start making their own Irish Mozzarella. to learn more about Toons bridge Dairy click Here
