Union Wine Bar Kitchen opening for June Bank Holiday
Union Wine Bar Kitchen is a new restaurant open from Saturday (June 4th) at the former location of the Munster Bar on The Mall (the Munster will still have a presence upstairs).
It's co-owned by Sommelier Morgan Vanderkamer and Chef Stephen McCardle (partners in life and in business).
I met them both on Monday ahead of the opening and you can listen back on that chat.
Springboard courses available at SETU
South East Technological University (SETU) has secured €9.9m in funding for Springboard courses over the next few years.
Springboard offers free or 90% funded courses in areas of high skills.
To find out more I was joined in studio by Neil Quinlan, head of the Department of Lifelong Learning at SETU.
Pioneering new technology at Dentaltech
I was also joined by Bevin Mahon, co-owner and MD of Dentaltech which will soon open a second premises in Waterford.
The company has unveiled Ireland's first 3D printed dental prosthetics.
Bevin spoke to me about that, and about staff shortages in dentistry.
You can listen to the show through the link in this podcast.
