Margaret’s Eggs

One of the most important elements of the full Irish- the eggs! Fried, scrambled, poached, or boiled- you won’t get a happier egg than this. Margaret gives her hens the freedom to forage expansive pastures of lush green grass, nourishing them with healthy, natural feed and provides a continuous supply of fresh clean water. Keeping happy hens is what she loves, and, in turn, it allows her to give something extraordinary back to the community – the very best tasting egg there is. Get them on the shopping list.

Fitzpatrick’s Gourmet Ketchup

An important element of the full Irish- a dollop of the best Ketchup around! Frank’s ketchup is made in small batches with no additives or preservatives used. This is a truly local taste with “just a splash” of Poitín in some of his sauces.

Moran’s Mega Jam

The final item for the table. A jar of the tastiest jam in all the land. Perfect to spread all over that last slice of wheaten bread or batch loaf. Kieron and Claire produce over 15 flavours of jam from you to choose from and they are readily available all over the Country!
