Tim McCarthy had a great morning when he did a live cooking slot on Colum McGrath’s breakfast show on C103, County Sound Radio. He cooked up a selection of McCarthys award winning products for breakfast, including the wonderful blackpudding which was awarded a medal in France recently by the Brotherhood of the Knights of the Blackpudding. If you missed it live on the Radio you can listen to it here by clicking play below.
Everyone in McCarthys was thrilled to welcome the Six Nations and Triple Crown Trophies into the shop recently. It is the first time in 61 years that Ireland has won both championships. The McCarthys are keen rugby followers, Jack is even the Vice President of Kanturk Rugby Club, so you can imagine the buzz caused by this unexpected event.
Jack is a proud man at the best of times, but winning this beautiful medal for his blackpudding has really made his week. La Confrérie des Chevaliers du Goûte Boudin, or the Brotherhood of the Knights of the Blackpudding awarded a medal and certificate in celebration of his achieving third place in this major international competition.
