Mick Healy, Wild Irish Game - Special Irish Foods & The People Who Make Them

Mick Healy, Wild Irish GameA fervent supporter of sustainable hunting and seasonality, Mick Healy was singled out for a 2014 Euro-Toques Award. Highlighting his ‘commitment to delivering the best and most sustainable wild game available’ he was also commended for ‘the quality of his products, which he handles with respect for tradition.’

County Wicklow is well stocked with furred and feathered creatures, making it a perfect base for a man who’s mad about wild game and much of his produce will come from his own locality - although it’s also said that ‘he would drive to Connemara to fill the desire for a snipe or woodcook, or to the Slobs in Wexford for widgeon, teal or mallard and up to Louth for wild Irish hare.’

In season (October to February), Wild Irish Game offers the widest selection of quality wild game available in Ireland, including Sika deer, which is the predominant species found in Mick’s home patch.

He is Ireland’s only Department of Agriculture approved processor of wild game including pheasant, venison, rabbit, quail, guinea foul, grouse, mallard, teal, wigeon, snipe, partridge, woodcock, rabbit, and woodpigeon .

High standards, consistency and reliability are the Healy by-words, which is just the encouragement many consumers need to try cooking game - the well presented vacuum packed and, in some cases, frozen products are distributed to selected outlets and sold online.
