Congratulations to Noel Lambe on winning the Best New Meat Product at the Associated Craft Butchers of Ireland national finals at the K Club.

Noel came up with the idea of combining Nolan’s famous sausages with chopped smoked bacon, homemade cranberry black pudding as well as our homemade white pudding in a pastry covered roulade, all combining together to make one delicious Irish Breakfast Roll. Noel was very proud to win both the Leinster Final & All Ireland Final competitions.

The awards were presented by Darina Allen, Ballymaloe Cookery School, Champion of Irish Butchers and Irish Artisan Food Producers.

Darina spoke of her great regard for traditional butchery skills; skills that have been passed down through generations and how wonderful that was and that is what Nolan’s of Kilcullen is all about.
