We have been extremely quiet with our blogs as of late – all down to lots of happenings at Oysters. The team have been working on lots of exciting projects including a very exciting announcement due in the coming weeks!
But as Mother’s Day fast approaches, I think it’s only fitting to introduce to you to our ‘Oysters Mummy’.
The woman behind the front of house!
Caroline began her career in hospitality at a very young age, serving in her parents bar, Mickey Friel’s in Strabane, clearly not of legal age to be selling alcohol at the time but that was the time that was in it.
Following on from that she worked for her aunt and uncle in Friels of Raphoe, working at many weddings throughout the years before taking up a post in the Fir Trees Hotel, Strabane.
Having studied at Queen’s University Belfast, Caroline entered the manufacturing industry working at Desmonds, Omagh before crossing the border, climbing her way to Product Development Manager at Fruit of the Loom, Buncrana.
With the ceasing of operations in Ireland for Fruit of the Loom, Caroline decided to ‘take a bit of time out and do the accounts for Kevin’ little did she know, 11 years ago it would turn into an extended ‘time out’.
‘Kevin’s Wife’ is the one who keeps things on track behind the scenes.
Busying herself sorting menus, keeping the books in tip top condition, updating social media, organising events along with attending to the many daily requests from Kevin to ‘do this and do that’.
And we cannot forget she is our in-house interior designer, responsible for exquisite surroundings.
This Sunday at Oysters we welcome all our special mums to celebrate your special day with us.
If you haven’t been able to secure a table for this Mothering Sunday then why not pop in for a gift voucher to treat your marvellous mum and spoil her instead to a relaxing lunch or indulgent High Tea.
So to all you mums out there and to my special Mummy, Happy Mother’s Day x
