TV3 Newest Game Show

Who knows you best – your nearest and dearest… or a computer?!
TV3 is looking for contestants for new game show, The Algorithm, the ultimate game show when it comes to man versus machine.
Playing for big money in each game, a small group of family and friends will try to predict the preferences of a loved one who is answering for themselves within a sound proof box on stage. But there's a lurking threat...The Algorithm! Pre-loaded with information on our player and the results from a national survey, The Algorithm will start making predictions of its own.
So will a computer prove it knows your family and friends better than you do, or can you beat the machine and get the cash!?
If you think this sounds like the game for you, and want to be in with a chance to win serious cash, apply at www.tv3.ie/takepart. Filming will take place at TV3 studios in Dublin in late August.
For more information you can call 083 4413212 or email sharon.newman@tv3.ie.

Love & Marriage!

Kitty Kellys & summer time are echoes of Sinatra's classic "love & marriage", they just go together like a horse and carriage !
To officially declare the arrival of summer, kitty Kellys reopens it's doors this Friday 30th May at 5.00pm and will remain open every evening for a la carte dining until late September Tel 0749731925 for reservation.

Kitty's new menu this season marks a return to some of its old classics. Back from the past are the smoked chicken salad with a melted Brie dressing best served with a glass of chilled moulin caresse Sauvignon blanc. Another vintage return to the menu is the 1/2 roast crispy duck, plum sauce, garlic mash, slow roast vegetables with a cardamon & peach chutney, with a choice of a chic Fleurrie or a glass of oak infused Chardonnay. Prime fish play a big part of our menu this year; crispy tender baby Octopus & monktail is our new signature dish, Hake with a rich crab hollandaise, John Dory with a sun dried herb tomato butter and Byrnes of Killybegs smoked haddock poached in a Donegal Blonde fish velouté all make for mouth watering temptations and are in good company with an apple flavoured Chablis or an Italian Pinot Grigio. For the vegetarian we have a beautiful dish of roasted peppers, courgettes & sweet potato , poached in a white wine cheese sauce and served in crepes with a tossed green salad & home cut chips. This dish can take a pear finished Sauvignon or a local Donegal beer, brewed in Ballyshannon. Finally for the steak lover we have a generous 10oz Sirloin, complete with our own cut triple cooked chips, roasted banana shallots & a classic cafe de Paris butter sauce. Nothing better to go with a steak of this class but a glass of Merlot or our house Rioja.

Louise Rowan, Lorna Lee Curran & Sharon Mullen are back refreshed for their 15th kitty season.
We have many new plans for this season including some after dinner irish trad music in July & August as well as launching our day time menu in July.
Kitty Kelly's was selected as Ambassador Restaurant by Failte Ireland for the Wild Atlantic Way and was recently featured in a glowing piece in the UK Sunday Times. We have received our Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor and Georgina Campbell has again included us in her 2014 guide for best places to dine in Ireland.
So gather up the horse & hitch up the carriage n make your way to Kitty Kellys for a gourmet treat this summer. We look forward to you dining with us.
