Country Butter Demo Sunday 21st July 3pm




Have you ever put your hand to a churn to make country butter? A regular chore on farms throughout Ireland but now extremely rare as few farms have the few cows for milking! Well come to Roundwood on Sunday 21st of July to see and give it a go. The demonstration will start shortly after 3pm in Roundwood Parish Hall and Centre. Sample your hard work after with fresh country butter on soda bread. You might even like to wash it down with a mug of fresh buttermilk. Patricia Byrne from Raheen, near Roundwood is one of the last locals who, up to 10 years ago still hand milked her few cows and made country butter. Folk travelled from far and wide to buy it with demand far exceeding supply! So head to Roundwood this weekend to see this traditional skill.
