Our Awards

Louth people love their football. Unfortunately, the county team is still going through a bit of a dry spell. We at Callaghans Butchers, on the other hand, win things all the time. We have numerous awards for our puddings and sausages.

Our black pudding has come first in Ireland twice – and so has our white pudding.

Our black pudding has won a BBC Great Taste award. We won a European award for our white pudding at the 2012 European White Pudding Championships in Normandy. We finished in the top ten out of 1,600 entries.

Peter Callaghan was made a Knight of the White Pudding, and has a medal to prove it.

We were the proud recipients of the Grand Prix d’Excellence, granted only to the top ten in Europe.

We’re also recognised by the Bridgestone Food Guide as one of the top places to eat, shop or stay in Ireland, and the Georgina Campbell Guide.

We confidently expect to be still leading the field when Louth finally win that long overdue All-Ireland!
