The Great Taste of Success for Hugh
St. Angela’s student, Hugh Maguire and his father (also Hugh Maguire) won the top prize at the Great Taste Awards in London this month, for their Smoked Black Pudding. Hugh helped his father develop the product in their shop ‘The Smokin’ Butcher’ in Ashbourne, Co. Meath.
The Maguire family have won a lot of awards over the years ‘but this one trumps them all’ said Hugh, ‘It already has had such a huge effect on business. It’s been fantastic!’
One of his lecturers, Roisin Lydon, commented – ‘it is an outstanding achievement for Hugh and the college is so proud of him. We encourage innovation as it helps students to think creatively and we are always pleased to see our students be rewarded for their endeavours.’
Hugh brought the award-winning Smoked Black Pudding into St. Angela’s where his lucky fellow students and lecturers were able to taste the winning product. Lecturer Ronan Mc Art added, ‘this was an amazing success story for Hugh and great inspiration for our other students, showing how passion and belief in your food product can lead to success on an international level.’
