The Cullinane family started the grocery and bakery business in 1865, but the Ring. family took it over in 1890 and ran it until 1935, when Jack and Maureen Field bought it. On that date, they made a commitment to supply only the finest produce and baked goods, and to offer a peerless service to all their customers – a tradition that has been continued by the third generation of the family to the present day.
Cork has just over 1,000kms of wild Atlantic coastline. And the many varieties of seaweed that grows along our coast are now being recognised as a great resource for everything from food and natural fertiliser to medical and beauty products. You can forage for your own seaweed, learn about edible types and taste some of the bounty of the West Cork shoreline with Wild Atlantic Way tours, led by a lady who is passionate about seaweed, Zita Dennehy.
