Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Visits Nolan's Butchers, Kilcullen

The Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Brendan Smith T.D, has today visited Nolan's Butchers, Kilcullen Co. Kildare.  This fourth generation business started in Kilcullen in 1886. The business, which currently employs around 20 full and part time staff, has expanded over the years and now includes a shop which sells wine and bread and has a delicatessen, in addition to the original butcher's shop. Considerable investment has been made recently in upgrading and developing the business.

Speaking on his visit, Minister Smith congratulated Nolan's on being awarded an export licence which will help them to develop an already thriving and highly professional business.

"For generations, Nolan's have been perfecting and improving their business. They are a perfect example of all that is good about the Irish food industry, which is worth over €9 billion a year in exports. As Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food I am very committed to promoting the ongoing growth in the agri-food sector and I consider businesses such as Nolan's a fine example of what can be achieved", the Minister said.
