Butcher brings pud­ding to new heights

Irish Examiner - Supplement - - FOOD & DRINK IRELAND - McCARTHY’S OF KANTURK

McCarthy’s Butch­ers of Kanturk use tra­di­tional tech­niques and in­no­va­tive new ideas and have be­come one of Ire­land’s most prom­i­nent and cel­e­brated meat pro­duc­ers.

Jack and his son, Tim, the fifth gen­er­a­tion of butcher in the fam­ily to run the shop, are known for their value-added beef and pork prod­ucts. McCarthy’s ba­con and rash­ers have won in­ter­na­tional awards; the black pud­ding has won ac­claim from the Brother­hood of the Knights of the Black­pud­ding and was served to the Queen at the ban­quet on her 2011 visit to Ire­land.

With qual­ity at the fore­most of their minds, and the clean air and lush pas­ture- land pro­vid­ing healthy live­stock, you can rest as­sured that Jack and Tim will source the finest meat for your plate.

The Bridge­stone Ir­ish Food Guide de­scribed it thus: “McCarthy’s look like a nor­mal butcher’s shop in a nor­mal Ir­ish town. It’s no such thing. Cher­ry­wood smoked beef. Duhal­low lamb sausage. A mem­ber of the Brother­hood of the Black Pud­ding. Whiskey dry-cured rash­ers. See what we mean about not be­ing a con­ven­tional butcher’s shop? Where else would you see meat treated with such fiendish imag­i­na­tion? Tim is the 5th gen­er­a­tion of the fam­ily to have taken up the butcher’s apron so McCarthy’s al­lies con­tem­po­rary nous and know how with more than a cen­tury of fam­ily tra­di­tion. Unique.”
