Visitors treated to a Taste of Northern Ireland at special EAAP show
Animal scientists from across the world have been given a taste of Northern Ireland thanks to a special event to mark the opening day of EAAP 2016.
Hundreds of conference visitors descended on St. George's Market - the last surviving Victorian indoor market in Belfast - for a cracking first evening of fabulous local food courtesy of Taste of Ulster.
Specially-brewed conference beer 'Moovin' On Up’ - produced by locally-based Bull house Brewing Company - went down a treat, as did the luxurious Glastry Farm ice cream.
As well as sampling some excellent food and drink attendees were able to buy local confectionary and crafts at the indoor market stalls whilst tapping their feet to a local traditional Irish band.
Local farmers also showed off their beautiful prized beasts in the farm livestock display as guests mingled and networked throughout the evening.
