  1. [...] Craft butchery is much in demand, as the nation realises that getting your meat from a local butcher is far more cost effective, tasty and reliable than a large supermarket. Leading this revolution is Pat Whelan, a Tipperary butcher who has developed a booming online store and an impressive new luxury butcher store in Avoca, Monkstown. Pat is also developing a range of evening courses aimed at teaching you all about meat, where it comes from, how and when it is used and also a range of basic butchery skills.

Classes are mainly held in Clonmel, and cost €99 per person, with private bookings available too. See here for more. [...]
