In 1978 Bernard Troy established the business in his butchers shop in Tyrrellspass, Co. Westmeath in Ireland. In the pre-supermarket era the butchers shop was a daily stop for any household and the business prospered. Many of the fine Irish steaks served in restaurants around the country come from cattle and sheep reared on the Troy family farm and from their neighbouring farmers, giving Troy’s a strong role in the local agricultural community. In 2000 Troy’s expanded from the butchers shop to a full service abattoir based on the family farm at Dalystown Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.
