Evan wins Butchering Apprentice of the Year

Deeeep breath. It’s been a busy couple of weeks with accolades, awards & reviews coming from all directions.

Well done to our very own Evan O Sullivan who has been with us just over 12 months and has been awarded butchering apprentice of the year. This is a national award, not easily won and is chosen from all the young butchering apprentices in the country. A massive honour for Evan. We are both delighted and proud of his achievement, it’s well deserved and he has a bright future ahead of him.

We won runner up in shop of the year 2018 and are delighted to be finishing so strongly in a category we won last year.

We also won best marketing initiatives for a butchers.

Thanks to each and every one of our customers and supporters without whom none of this would be possible.

‘You can have the best craic at the counter’: The stories of Ireland’s old-school butchers

by Amy O’Connorpublished in www.thejournal.ie

 

Thanks to Amy for featuring us in this article. Read the full article here

….For his part, McCarthy believes that butchers still play an important role in their local communities. There’s a personal touch that you just don’t get in supermarkets.

“I love meeting people. You can have the best craic inside the counter talking to people, meeting people, catching up with people. Giving you their news, giving them your news. It’s a very sociable job. Our average interaction with someone could be four to five minutes.You know their habits, you know what they’re into.”

“I don’t call them customers. They’re all my friends coming in.”

With Christmas just around the corner, McCarthy says the turkey queries are coming in thick and fast. It reminds him of a well-worn phrase.

“You know they say, ‘A turkey is for life and not just for Christmas?’ A butcher is there all year round, not just at Christmas.”
