Kierans Delicatessen prides itself in supplying wholesome quality fresh foods sourced as locally as possible. We endeavour to provide our foods and service at the fairest value and with friendly and attentive service in mind.
Our earliest records suggest that the firm originally traded as a sole trader around 1919. Founded by Alderman Owen Kierans (or Ownie as he was better known) at 105 West Street.
Ownie was aided by 4 of his five ! brothers. Tommy, Peter, Patrick and finally Michael, his main partner. Gerry being the only brother not to follow suit. The firm eventually became a Limited Company in 1944 when it crossed the road to 15 West Street, its home ever since.
To this day, the Company, relying on the third generation of the same family, continues to trade with the grandchildren of Michael now at the helm.
Our main suppliers, for many years now, have been Tony Kieran (no relation) of Dundalk for our Poultry needs and Tom Lynch of Ardee for our Pork, Bacon and Ham needs.
Our Business has three main areas to it. Our Fresh Food counter, which probably best reflects our original Business. Our Deli and Sandwich counter, which now has a massive hot foods offering, was a significant innovation in its time almost 50 years ago and more recently our Outside and Corporate Catering which continues to go from strength to strength.
It is in the season of Christmas when Kierans Deli truly shines.
From the staple Christmas fare of fresh, whole and boneless Irish Hams, Oven Ready and boneless Turkeys, Cranberry Sauce, Goose Fat, Luxury Chocolates, Yuletide logs, Christmas Puddings, Fruit Cakes, Brandy Butter, Chutneys , Preserves our gorgeous Homemade Stuffing, Breadcrumbs, Chicken Livers (for the ultimate in Homemade Pate) to Gift Vouchers and sumptuous Luxury Hampers, we have it all.
