At a young age of 17 Ronnie began working with Patrick Mc Garvey in outdoor catering, from there Ronnie went onto work in the Mount Errigal hotel in Letterkenny, where he met his wife Caroline. After working as a waiter in the hotel he was moved into the kitchen where he worked alongside a very talented chef Jimmy Mc Loughlin from Bangor. Jimmy left the Mount Errigal and both Caroline and Ronnie joined him to work in Nellys Bar & Restaurant in Port Stewart. Ronnie’s love for food was really shining through at this stage. Himself and Caroline moved back to Rathmullan where they both worked in Rathmullan House, He and Caroline then took the leap of moving to France, there they got married and had their 2 boys, Kealan & Orrin. During his time in France Ronnie worked in some great establishments, working in outdoor catering, award winning creperies, brasserie restaurants along with Hotel work. They decided after 10 year’s to move home and settled in Rathmullan, Ronnie went back to work in Rathmullan House, The Silver Tassie & The WatersEdge Restaurant. The decision was made in 2004 to pursue his dreams of having their own business. 2004 seen the opening of Salt n Batter Takeaway & 2007 the opening of Belles Kitchen.
