A Butcher Shop With A Difference


Eddie Walsh & Sons have been trading in Donegal for almost 50 years. Over time a strong reputable business has been established with exceptional quality and service provided.

Eddie Walsh & Sons specialise in Aubrac beef which is renowned for its flavour, tenderness and quality.

They have also claimed a host of titles at several events orgnaised by the Butchery Excellence Scheme (BES) and the Craft Butcher Association of Ireland. Winning these prestigious
competitions have added to an already strong reputation established for great quality meat and excellent customer service.

This family run business is proudly carrying on the tradition. Eddie Walsh first opened his butcher shop in 1962, in Ballintra. Sadly Eddie passed away in May of 2014, however his name and craft will still live on through his family.

EWS Traditional Butchers claimed a host of titles at recent events organised by the Butchery Excellence Scheme (BES). The Ulster Sausage and Burger Competition took place at CAFRE’s Loughry campus in Cookstown, Co Tyrone, with EWS Traditional Butchers were awarded the overall prize after winning the Best Steak Burger category.

The award-winning burger developed by EWS Traditional Butchers was also a winner in the Barbeque category in the 2014 All-Ireland competition by the Association of Craft Butchers of Ireland.

WP WALSH, BUTCHER at EWS says’When we first saw the Aubrac Breed, we found them to be an exceptional butchers animal. Having purchased a number of Aubrac Cattle for our own
breeding purposes, when at a later stage a few of the progeny were slaughtered for our own butchery use, we found that the Aubrac Beef possessed a perfect covering of light fat and some marbling. The carcass of the Aubrac have the correct amount of muscle also and a meat to bone ratio and bone-out percentage which is second to none.
The Aubrac carcasses have performed exceptionally in the factories and continue to hit the U’s and E’s grade consistently’.

The Walsh family continue to claim a whole array of titles with their prize-winning Aubrac Beef.

Their Aubrac cattle have also claimed titles such as Supreme and Reserve Champion at National Shows and Irish Aubrac Society Annual Shows and Sales.

EWS have two Butcher shops, one in Donegal town and the other in Ballintra.
