It all began when Shay and his wife bought Southlands Meats. Once they had settled in, Shay started to talk about the products he used to sell in Ireland. His father Paddy registered recipes in Dublin and after much development around spice mixtures, he began to create some of these products. Such was the success of these, that Southlands Meats was outgrown by the Irish Butcher, which became an entity in its own right.
The Irish Butcher has won many awards over the years through participating in the Sausage King Competition coming first, second and third across the region and state.
The Irish Butcher Shay was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. His father Paddy was also a butcher. Shay's parents had owned a butcher's shop that sold meat and groceries. Shay started at a young age working in his family business and started learning the trade from his father. Shay has continued using some of his family's recipes and has created new ones. Paddy's Irish Sausages are named after Shay's father and Maura's Irish Stuffing is named after Shay's Mother. We hope to continue using their recipes and our own for many years to come.

Went in today and purchases Irish pork sausages, raheny ham, white pudding. Also bought some Scotch Fillets and lamb cutlets. The kids loved the lamb cutlets and Irish sausages. Ham was fantastic on a sandwich. Cost was reasonable. Sausages nice and lean. Will have the scotch fillet tomorrow for dinner. Will defiantly go back.
Well was in Penrith recently from VIC staying at friends and I said I will buy the meat from the local butcher for a BBQ.
Went to the Irish Butcher and WOW expensive meat. Only bought a 2 items and went to the local supermarket and bought the rest.
I must say local supermarket was a better quality meat...
The sausages, Irish Pork (something like that) was very dry, they needed more pork fat in it.
Wouldn;t recommend it. Will buy meat elsewhere. Staff where not that friendly, maybe they where just having an off day...
