Easily spotted by its smart facade, quality is key at Niall Heffernan's thriving store

The Food Store

Easily spotted by its smart facade, Good Food Ireland member Niall Heffernan's thriving store began as Heffernan Meats.


It is still known especially for quality meat - the beef is Mayo Aberdeen Angus, lamb comes mostly from their own farm nearby, they sell their own dry-cured bacon and an impressive range of home-prepared ready meals - but this surprising place is actually a latter day version of the traditional country shop that stocked everything.


There's an in-house bakery, a deli section specialising in home cooked meats, fresh local organic produce and a carefully selected range of niche products including organic ranges like Noodle House pastas and sauces and Sowans bread mixes. Also a second store at the town's Silverbridge Shopping Centre (094 937 7788).

Open Mon-Thus 7.45-6.30,Fri-Sat 7.45-7, Sun 9-5. abbreviations
