Man of Aran Fudge

The man behind this evocatively named product is Aran Islands native,Tomás Poil, from the small island of Inis Oirr.


His love of fudge all began with the treats his granny used to send him when he went away to school, but since starting to make fudge commercially in 1996 the has developed the concept to an unprecedent level and now offers over 20 varieties - and counting.


You can't miss him at markets and events such as Bloom and regional food festivals, where his stall is invariably the most recognisably branded to stand out from the crowd.  And there he'll be himself, selling award winners like Granny's Nutty Fudge and Irish Coffee Fudge, and many others - some of them, such as the Christmas Pudding Fudge are seasonal, while others like the Caramel Beurre Salé Fudge are not only delicious but have curiosity value too.


There is no limit to Tomás's imagination and energy - and the quality of his ingredients, including real Irish butter and fresh cream, are the secrets to Man of Aran's success.
