the richness of ireland

natural resources
The richness of our natural resources in Ireland is quite breathtaking: abundant rain, a temperate climate and near organic grass, as we don’t spread any chemical fertiliser on our land on which to graze our healthy livestock. 

Industry Leading Supply Chain Standards

trust in our supply chain
Having our own farm and our own abattoir allows us to give people that essential element of trust at each stage of the supply chain.

From selection to maturation, to end – product refrigeration and presentation, that every consumer requires when they purchase meat today.

The Evolution

Our History

mick & kathleen healy

founder - 1943
Founder Mick Healy first trained to be a Master butcher in Portumna, County Galway in the 1930’s.

He worked for free for 5 years after his mother had paid 5 old Irish pounds to a local butcher for him to train in the profession.

After his training he cycled 26km from Portumna, County Galway to Banagher located on the river Shannon in County Offaly where he opened Healy’s Butcher Shop and Abattoir in 1943 alongside his hardworking and supporting wife Kathleen.

What's important to us?

Our Founder Mick Healy’s entrepreneurial spirit lives on in Healy Family Meats.

We are family-owned and run, which generates an optimistic, open and welcoming working environment. 

Our master butchers value the ideal cut for the perfect serving, through the awareness of how to condition and age meat. They are aware how the art of butchering can produce quality results for our valued customers. 

In a demanding but vibrant environment, our philosophy is to replicate the vision and goals in each staff member of Healy Family Meats.

Our high standards are achieved by constantly assessing and reassessing every aspect of our business. We do this by listening to our customers and our people.
