Horan’s Pork Shop has been a constant presence in Athlone since 1949. It has seen a lot of changes in the town, and we are very proud to still be standing tall after 68 years. The future is very bright. Here’s to another 68 years! Horan’s Pork Shop was established in 1949 by Bill Horan. The location for the shop was on Church Street, Athlone. Michael, his son, took on the business from his father and following his sudden death in 2011, his nephews Mark & Brian decided to keep the business going into its third generation. We are a family business that is in its third generation as specialist Pork Butchers. We source pigs locally, and run our own approved abattoir so we have full control of our products which is a luxury these days.
When a customer calls into our shop they are greeted with a smile and a friendly face. We pride ourselves on all the handmade sausages and fresh products we have to offer. Pork chop’s are a big seller and we have a chop to suit all tastes and appetites. A lot of customers are surprised at the variety of chop’s on offer, unlike the supermarkets that stock vacuum packed, pale, little chop’s that are tasteless and disappointing. All of our customers are different so we cater to everyone’s needs, from the large family, to the single student, and we give each and every one the same care and attention. Call into the shop we will be more than happy to help you choose the right cut for you.
Open Tuesday to Saturday 9am to 6pm.
