I spotted a face familiar to many in IFA circles when a Supermac’s ad appeared on my screen there one of the evenings.

IFA’s Ulster/north Leinster regional chair Nigel Renaghan stole the show promoting Supermac’s use of 100% Irish chicken. I know he’s a dab hand at farm diversification but movie star is definitely a new one for me.

I’m told Nigel’s admiration for Supermac’s dates back several years and he has been a very public supporter of Pat McDonagh for quite some time.
