Nolan’s of Kilcullen had a very successful day at the Associated Craft Butchers of Ireland National Craft Finals which were held in the K Club, Straffan on Sunday 29th October.

Nolan’s of Kilcullen won the National Championship Title for their Gluten Free Sausages in the Gluten Free category and finished runner up with their Reduced Fat Sausages in the Lifestyle Choice category. They also claimed the Championship title for the Best Spiced Beef in Ireland in the hugely competitive National Spiced Beef competition beating off strong opposition from the rest of the country. James Nolan was quick to praise Fred Mitchell for all his hard work with Nolan’s world famous Sausages, which are made fresh every day in Nolan’s of Kilcullen. James also paid huge credit to Dermott Mitchell and Marc Behan with the preparation of the Spiced Beef for the national finals last Sunday. With Christmas only round the corner these prestigious national awards will give the friendly and capable Team in Nolan’s of Kilcullen a huge lift before the busy Festive period.

Nolan’s of Kilcullen won the award for the Best Butchers Shop in the U.K. & Ireland at the House of Lord’s London in 2015 as well as an Outstanding Achievement Award at the World Cup Finals for Craft Butchers in Frankfurt in 2016.
