Blas­ket lamb on the menu in Cork

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

CORK’S Market Lane Group of restau­rants will have lamb from the Blas­ket Is­lands on their menus from this Wednesday (Oc­to­ber 11), giv­ing city dwellers a rare chance to savour the award-win­ning meat

The event, now in its eighth year, lasts un­til the lamb is all eaten – usu­ally by the end of the month – and dur­ing that time the Market Lane, Orso and El­bow Lane restau­rants and the Cas­tle Café will of­fer spe­cial lamb dishes such as El­bow Lager Lamb Pie, Blas­ket Lamb Leg in Fish Sauce, and Moroc­can Braised Lamb Shank.

The lambs are raised by Don­nacha Ó Ceil­leachair on the Blas­ket is­lands and Din­gle butcher Jerry Kennedy, who also sells the meat in his shop in Or­chard Lane, se­lects the lambs that are to be dis­patched to Cork, where their “im­pec­ca­ble prove­nance” is greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.
