Tipperary's finest crisps !

Since the 1700s over seven generations of the O’Donnell family have lived on Seskin Farm, Co. Tipperary. In 2007 Ed O’Donnell, wanted to diversify as farming was looking bleak at the time. He saw a niche in the market for an Irish hand cooked cooked crisp and decided to make crisps from the potatoes grown on his farm. Ed believed it was important that the product and flavours were Irish and artisan so he sourced local food producers to give the crisps fantastic individual flavours. In June 2010 O’Donnells Crisps were born! O’Donnells crisps have no artificial colours or flavours, No MSG or GM ingredients, just honest to goodness crunch!

For first time visitors to Bloom, Love Irish Food ‘Meeting the Brexit Challenge’ marquee is a foodie’s haven, so come down and meet the makers of some remarkable Irish-produced food and drink brands as well as witnessing first-hand brand-new products being launched.
