Dinner 2050: Future of Food in Ireland at the Town Hall Theatre

A collaboration between Wicklow Chef/Food Historian Tadgh Byrne and Dublin Filmmaker, Max Barry, this 1-hour documentary explores how Ireland will eat in 2050 – looking at issues such as how technology will change farming, food security, robot chefs, drone deliveries and sustainability in the food supply chain. The film is due to reach a large audience in 2024.

There have been several screenings of the film so far in 2024, all of which have spurred lively discussions.

Speaking on the reception so far to the film, Byrne has said “The fact that so many people with high-powered jobs were willing to give up their time to be in the film and the many encouraging emails we have had, reminds me this is a very important project and I think it will be well received nationwide”.

Commenting on the importance of the film Michelin star chef JP McMahon said: “Food affects every single aspect of our lives. If we don’t look at the how, why and where our food is coming from, then we lose control of that food”.

Byrce Evans, Irish History Writer and Lecturer at Hope University, Liverpool said: “This new film by the multi-talented Tadgh Byrne examines the future of food in Ireland… I’m honoured to have been a part of it… A must-see for anyone interested in sustainable food futures”
