De Búrca’s Traditional Butcher Shop is the husband and wife team Seán Bourke and Sarah Ní Shúilleabháin. He’s the butcher and she’s the ex-scientist apprentice butcher, blogger, photographer, cook, taste-tester, recipe-writer, sausage maker, spice mix blender…. and they’re both the parents of two food critics AA Gill would be proud of.
De Búrca’s opened in 2014 and is a whole animal butcher shop that is striving towards 100% sustainability in terms of meat. This would mean that they would only use whole, slowly reared, grass fed, local animals, nose to tail in their products in the shop. They are working on these products to allow them to do this, the first of which are their sausages. They were given two titles of Grand Prix d’Honneur for three of their sausages at the CFGDA (Commanderie des fins Goustiers du Duche Alencon) in France in 2015.
