Meet the Producer – Donegal Prime Fish

Welcome to our new feature where every month we will highlight one of our amazing local producers. Keeping with the theme of the Year of Food and Drink – July is month of ‘Seas, Rivers and Loughs’ our first feature is DONEGAL PRIME FISH.

Given our geographical ‘prime’ location on the North coast we are so lucky to have some of the sweetest tasting fish, thanks to our cold atlantic waters. And back in the 1980s Reggie Ryan certainly knew it when he started Donegal Prime Fish. The business began in a humble shed beside Greencastle Pier but moved into Derry as the demand grew North of the border.

After an illness in 2006 sadly Reggie passed away, leaving behind his wife Dorothy and three daughters Emma, Grace and Laura. Determined to carry on with the business they immersed themselves fully in it. I caught up with Emma, Dorothy and their manager Patsy to find out the top 5 ‘fishy’ things you need to know about this family business…
