James and Emma Nolan were thrilled to hear the good news from the Associated Craft Butchers of Ireland and they were quick to acknowledge the hard work done on a daily basis by Fred Mitchell who makes the sausages and puddings fresh every day.
James also said that his father Andy, would have been very proud to see the great results as the recipes that are used today, are the old recipes that Andy passed on to his son.
