Like so many Irish families, baking bread was a staple part of every day life. Baking bread over the house fire on a griddle in a flat pan used to get the best distribution of bake across the Potato Farls.

Potato Farls aka fadge (potato cakes) are traditionally one of the distinguishing items of food in an Ulster Fry. There they are shallow-fried on both sides for a short time and served with sausages and onion gravy.

In 1912 W.D. Irwin and his wife Ruth opened for business in a small bakery in Portadown, Co Armagh. The exact date of opening of Irwin’s Bakery is unknown. However, the family choose 1912 due to the discovery of a paper trail in the oldest original building before the bakery moved site.
W. D. Irwin’s wife, Ruth Irwin (nee Palmer) and her sister baked fresh bread for the people of Portadown and the demand for freshly baked bread soon increased.
Also with an increase of trade from 1912, Irwin’s bakery grew and grew over the next 20 years. Sales of bread and cake products meant that the town of Portadown were provided with freshly baked bread on a daily basis.
Now home of Northern Ireland’s favourite product – Nutty Krust; Irwin’s is still a family business with grandson’s Brian and Niall Irwin playing an integral role at the bakery. With a history of 100 years baking in the community of Portadown, Irwin’s look forward to many years of serving their local communities in Northern Ireland.
