Gerry Boland became a vegetarian in the mid-80s and later adopted a vegan lifestyle.

The word ‘vegan’ has become somewhat of a buzzword in the past number of years, with many fast-food restaurants, supermarket chains and clothing labels now creating animal-free products.

Although the term vegan was coined in 1944 – with the concept being traced back to ancient Indian and eastern Mediterranean societies – it has only recently become a widely used and recognised term.
