Much to her delight, Grainne was chosen as one of 30 finalists out of over a thousand entries, who then had to go to the Cook's Academy and prepare their dishes.

'She had make three servings for judges Kevin Dundon, Catherine Fulvio and Catherine Leydon,' said Lorraine.

Grainne's eye-catching and tasty 'Angry Birds' sandwiches proved a big hit and she was announced as the runner-up in one of the ten categories.

'It was a great achievement as she was competing against adults,' said Lorraine, who accompanied Grainne to the competition and also to the prize-giving at a gala ball in the Shelbourne Hotel while husband Sean and children Emily and James stayed at home.
