Edward Twomey

Speciality pork products have always been a strength in Ireland and really good black pudding, especially, has generally been easy to find.


Thanks to that great butcher, the late Eddie Twomey, Clonakilty is known internationally for the deliciously grainy black pudding that he made to an old recipe 


Since Edward's untimely death in 2005, Colette Twomey has taken up the reins with great enthusiasm and business acumen, having now moved the production to a new level (and in new dedicated premises), without sacrificing the essential quality and character of the original handmade product.


Black pudding is used mainly as a breakfast product but it is also a very versatile ingredient in cooking and works expecially well with seafood (black pudding and scallops have become a classic starter combination). Even in areas where there is another excellent speciality pudding available, many chefs opt to use Clonakilty Black Pudding because of its consistent standard and a texture which is interesting yet stable.


But this fine traditional butchers shop does much more than sell the iconic black pudding. They do everything else well too, offering a full range of fresh meats and meat products, all of a very high standard.
