The Letterkenny cook caused another storm last week when he left Ireland – and debts – to move to America.
Now we can reveal the real reason – the Co Donegal man is hoping to make an American version of his TV3 show ‘Head Chef’ for one of the top networks.
“Conrad has been showing the series to several top American TV stations,” said one friend in Letterkenny.
“He is hoping that the format can be repeated in the States with him in the starring role.
“He is very positive about it all. There’s room for another Gordon Ramsay on American television.
“Conrad will know sooner rather than later if this is going to work.”
One Co Donegal businessman is hoping Gallagher does net a big money deal – so he can get his bill paid.
Maurice Kettyle of Kettyle Meats in Letterkenny claims Gallagher, from Hawthorn Heights, owes him about €7,000 for produce he supplied to his restaurants.
“He has conned the country again. If I was broke I couldn’t afford the airfare to LA let alone set up a new life there.
“There were two big deliveries that went unpaid, it was about €7,000. The cheque bounced.
“I contacted him a number of times and it was the same old story. Now I hear that he has left the country.
“It is difficult enough to do business without this type of behaviour. I don’t know how he can take in money and not pay his debt, signs, staff and suppliers,” fumed Mr Kettyle.
