Drummully boxty

The original gluten free, low fat potato super-food made to a unique traditional family recipe.

Paul & Nan Farrelly have been making Drummully Boxty on Drummully Farm in Killeshandra, Co. Cavan since 1983. Back then, Paul had been working on the buildings and lost his job and needed another income to support his farm. Paul and his mother decided to start making boxty and selling it to local shops. Over thirty years later and their company is still going strong, distributing their unique product around Ulster, Connaught and Leinster. It has risen in popularity since then with customers all over the country enjoying this unique traditional Irish food.

Drummully Boxty Dumplings are made using only natural ingredients, potatoes and salt. Boxty is a traditional Irish potato dish and dates back to the days of the Irish famine,
when it was known as a peasant food and known as “Aran bocht tí” or “Bacstaí” or poorhouse bread. Their recipe has been handed down through previous generations to reach your plate and give you a taste of traditional Ireland that we all long for.
