Taron has never taken a photo of what he was eating.
His great-uncle Paddy Smyth immigrated from Ballyjamesduff, Ireland and was one of two top secret deep sea divers on the West Coast during the war years. He rescued bodies and bombs from sunken ships. Taron is the proud owner of his uncle’s 50-pound diving helmet.
