Dublin Butcher's Contract For Lambay Island Beef, Lamb - And Wallaby?

14th November 2014
Dublin Butcher's Contract For Lambay Island Beef, Lamb - And Wallaby?

#IslandNews - Lambay Island is already known for supplying beef to some of Dublin's most exclusive restaurants – but did you know it also has wallaby?

It's not just an urban myth: the lush green island off North Co Dublin, just 20km from the heart of the city, hosts a hardly mob of the marsupials among its wild grazing cattle, sheep and game.

And the lean meat from these Aussie interlopers could soon end up on plates across the capital, thanks to Dublin-based butchers M&K Meats' new 10-year exclusive deal with the island's guardians, as Business & Leadership reports.

Of course that novelty factor shouldn't distract from the quality of the succulent beef and lamb for which the island is best known.

Business & Leadership has more on the story HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
