About me

Hello my name is Valerie Tirmant, I am originally from France and moved to the West of Ireland in 2015, with my lovely husband Ben and our 2 beautiful daughters.

Following a 20 year career in the motor industry I decided it was time for a complete change of direction. My passion for good food and love of meeting new people led me to the concept of The Fire Slice. I wanted to combine authentic French pizza methods together with locally sourced ingredients to bring a truly unique mobile culinary experience to the West of Ireland.

The Fire Slice aims to provide you with tasty fresh artisan pizza for all your special occasions. We are a street food truck, so you will find us on different days in different locations in and around Castlebar.

Contact us today so we can discuss a beautiful menu for your event. We will set up our 1973 classic French food truck at your party location. There, you can observe as we create your perfect pizza before your eyes in our wood-fire oven.


I was lucky enough to carry out my training and receive my qualification as a pizzaiola in the Lutetia restaurant near Paris. They have a fantastic team there, Jeremy, Vincent, Tristan and Jimmy in his truck who encouraged and helped me throughout my time there.

The Van

My food truck is a 1973 Citroen HY van, originally owned by Jean-Pierre, an electrician who was going around villages in the 70’s and 80’s near Issoudun in the center of France. It took months to get it fully restored and converted into a Food Truck.

The Oven

The stone oven has been built using traditional methods and materials, and at 400°C is capable of cooking a thin base pizza in under 2 minutes!
