You may recall our competition last week for a Broadsheet reader to win a free gastronomic dinner at the Royal Hibernian Gallery with a deserving chum.

After careful deliberation, ‘Millie St Meadowlarkconvinced the judges to award her free dinner with her heroic pal Eve at Of Land & Sea’  – festive pop up dinners on December 14 and 15 in the RHA, Ely Square, Dublin 2 , organised by Native Spaces, a culinary collective working with small scale producers.

Thanks all.

UPDATE: Michael at ‘Of Land and Sea’ has given a pair of seats to ‘Mr Sinister‘ and his fiancee so he can propose. Mmf.
