It is one of those outrageous facts that is almost impossible to understand, so try hard to get this extraordinary piece of history into your head: Furlong’s Butchers of Wexford are 400 years old.

400 years! From 1621 to 2021, and beyond. Such longevity is almost beyond human understanding, except that when you step into the Furlong’s shops, in Wexford town and Gorey, you will be able to get some inkling of how such a unique history has been maintained by this family firm. Furlong’s have endured because Furlong’s are the cutting edge, today and, we suspect, going right back in time through the centuries. To survive through the tumult of time one has to be almost out of time, and Furlong’s have always seemed to be ahead of time, anticipating changes, refining and perfecting every aspect of their peerless meat and food offering, always out in front of the mainstream.

What this means for the customer is that Furlong’s have everything you need, whatever you need. The butchery skills are first-rate, the prepared foods are of traiteur excellence, the food hall ensures that this one-stop destination will satisfy the most arcane needs. Lucky Wexford, to have such a stellar definition of excellence. And here’s to the next 400 years!
