In a statement issued to RedFM News the organisers say they are a small group of restaurants in a relatively small town and the members main priority now is their own business which they says, as everyone knows are extremely hard to staff and proprietors and chefs are working long hours to keep the show on the road. To maintain such high standards that Kinsale food is known for. We are extremely disappointed that we are unable to hold this event.
