Limerick City Tidy Towns Monthly Award March 2018 goes to La Fromagerie at 74 Catherine Street
The Limerick Tidy Towns Monthly Award March 2018 was given to La Fromagerie cheese shop for its beautifully maintained unit at 74 Catherine Street. Pictured outside the shop being presented with the award by Maura O’Neill of Limerick City Tidy Towns is the owner Brian Halpin.
Maura says “This
charming little shop is a wonderful addition to the streetscape of Catherine Street and we were very impressed by the total transformation of this previously empty unit to what is now a beautifully authentic, continental style cheese shop. The large spotless front window allows for attractive displays of the wide variety of products they sell, and the striking signage, entrance door, paintwork and exterior lamps enhance its appeal, making it feel like a little bit of France in the heart of Limerick city.”
La Fromagerie is owned and run by Brian Halpin, and first opened in August 2017. It stocks a wide variety of delicious high-quality gourmet cheese, olives, pate and much more, sourced from all over Europe with an emphasis on the Mediterranean and North Africa. Brian also strives to source as much as possible from local farmers and cheese producers in the Munster region. To see their wide variety of products for yourself, please drop by the shop, see their Facebook page La Fromagerie Cheese Limerick, or call Brian on 087 670 8613.
