Tuites Butchers | Butchers Drogheda – SINCE 1962 TUITES BUTCHERS DROGHEDA HAVE PROVIDED HIGH QUALITY, AWARD-WINNING MEATS FROM OUR FARM, ALLOWING US TO GUARANTEE QUALITY FROM FARM TO FORK. HAVE YOU TRIED OUR AWARD-WINNING HANDMADE SAUSAGES YET?
Tuites Butchers Drogheda was established in 1962 by Michael ‘Mick’ Tuite. Michael came to Drogheda in 1954 to serve his time as a butcher in Smyths Butchers on West Street. He then opened his own shop at the Bullring in 1962. Due to the building of a new dual carriageway through the Bullring in the early 1970′s the original shop had to close and be demolished to accommodate the new road, Michael was fortunate enough to acquire the current shop at 9 Bullring which stands to this day.
In 1982 Michaels’ son Eddie, along with Kevin Lambe took control of the business. In 1989 they expanded with the opening of a second shop on Laurence Street and in 1993 opened a third shop on Trinity Street and in 2015 extended the number of Tuites Butchers in Drogheda to 4 shops with Ballymakenny Road being the latest addition. The business is currently in its third generation with Eddies’ son Thomas involved, along with Kevins’ two sons Kenneth and Conor, and have become an integral part to the continued success of the business ensuring we can offer our produce to our customers for many years to come.
The most important part of our business has and always will be offering only the best produce for our customers sourced from local farms and suppliers. The industry has changed a lot over the past 20 years but we still believe in a nose to tail style of butchering which means we only buy whole sides of beef, lamb pork which we produce ourselves allowing us to offer the customer every cut of their choice. Unfortunately this is a practice which is disappearing in many butcher shops around the country which leaves the customer with less of an option of what they can purchase.
Tuites Butchers Drogheda produce our own ham, bacon, sausages, burgers, puddings, stuffing and a large range of oven ready foods for customers convenience. To keep up with the growing demand for healthier foods we have a large range to accommodate all needs, from lean meats high in protein such as homemade turkey burgers, turkey sausages, turkey steaks, lean cuts of beef chicken pork and lamb to foods free from gluten like our homemade gluten free burgers, goujons, sausages stir frys and many of our homemade oven ready products free from gluten.
