Millstreet had two winners at the recent Sausage & Pudding Championships with O’Leary’s Family Butchers in the Square winning a Gold medal in the Traditional Sausage section, and O’Brien’s Craft Butcher from Minor Row winning a Silver Medal also in the Traditional Sausage. They had previously been successful in the regional competitions (Southern Region) which qualified them for the finals. All the medals won are detailed below. The Corkman also had an article on their successes:
Well known Jerry Pat O’Leary recently won a National Award at Craft Butchers Sausage & Pudding competition at the RDS in Dublin.
He demonstrated that the very important attribute of consistency forms part of his reputation for quality, by hitting the top spot at the award ceremony. Having given a strong performance at regional level with three gold medals, Mr O’Leary’s produce was recognised and awarded by the presiding judges.
