Peter O'Sullivan is currently carrying on the proud tradition of the O'Sullivan family meat business, which dates back to 1958 and continues to make his family recipe for Sneem Black Pudding by hand and sell it direct from the shop and through a few other selected butchers in the county.
Unlikely as it may seem, versions of this renowned local product are made by two butchers within yards of each other, producing a broadly similar style of pudding but each handmade according to their own family recipe. Both are members of the respected Associated Craft Butchers of Ireland and they’re living proof that competition is good for you, as both are clearly thriving on it.
Sneem Black Pudding features on many a menu in the area - visitors might find it interesting to buy a sample of each version and hold a comparative tasting..
