WE LOVE BAKING, OUR STORY - Grandpa ‘Fa’ the Bakery Founder

Our family started our first bakery in Blarney Street in Cork in 1910. When our Grandfather “Fá” (Donal) joined the bakery in 1928 they had already established a reputation for baking great tasting breads.

“Fá” realised that it was very important to build on that reputation.
As other bakeries became more mechanised, he stayed true to the original craft baking traditions. He believed that flavour and freshness were vital so, even though some of the breads were no longer handmade, he ensured that the traditional process of adding a pre-fermented dough to each batch continued.
