SPAR sponsors new Donal Skehan TV series

Posted on: 11 Oct 2021

Filmed in his home kitchen, tune in Wednesday nights at 7.30pm on RTÉ One from 13th October


The past 18 months has thrown plenty of curveballs at us all and Donal Skehan is no exception. Aside from the obvious lockdowns, throw in an overseas move, juggling two toddlers, writing a book and filming a brand-new TV show, there is seldom a dull moment in the Skehan household. However, there is always time to serve up good food and Donal’s Family Kitchen will help you do the same, kicking off from Wednesday 13th October at 7.30pm on RTÉ One, sponsored by SPAR.


Being back home in Ireland and closer to his family, Donal recognises the necessity of those essential recipes that make a home kitchen tick, the classic dishes he comes back to time and time again for comfort and security. As life begins to return to normal, Donal’s Family Kitchen will celebrate those missed moments with extended family and friends, while his ‘Kitchen keepers’ are tried and tested recipes that you will return to over and over to satisfy the pickiest eaters!


"I'm thrilled to bring you my new series this Autumn, filmed entirely in my home kitchen using recipes that I love to make for my own family. Following the overwhelming response to last year's series and triggering a nationwide shortage of lamb shanks (sorry about that!) I'm going to be filling your kitchen with even more doable recipes that will keep you cooking and baking through winter and beyond!" says Donal


With children back in school and everyone gradually returning to the office, the last thing you need is the headache of deciding what’s for dinner! Discover recipes that don’t require long lists of ingredients and avoid a last-minute dash to the supermarket with Donal’s time-saving tricks for mealtimes.


Commenting, SPAR Sales Director Colin Donnelly said, “We’re delighted to be partnering with Donal once again for what we expect to be another fabulous series. Donal has a lovely style and friendliness that resonates with viewers and SPAR shoppers alike. We’re thrilled to continue our successful partnership with Donal, which is now in its 11th year.”


Tune in every Wednesday on RTÉ One at 7.30pm from 13th October to catch Donal in action and get all the inspiration you could ever need to feed a busy family, entertain guests and impress your friends.
