Guardians of the Secret Recipe

In the 1880s, Philip Harrington continued to make the blackpudding. The blackpudding was also sent overseas to emigrants who longed for the taste of home. The precious recipe was faithfully handed down to Philip’s family. For almost a century the blackpudding was made by Paddy Allman, Dan Harrington and Con O’Callaghan.

The 1960’s saw the transfer of the business and staff to Patrick McSweeny, who in 1976 sold the shop and unknown asset of the secret recipe to his nephew Edward Twomey.
