About Sheelin Meats
Sheelin Meats aptly named because of its location, overlooking the beautiful shores of lough Sheelin in Carrick, Finea, Co. Cavan, was setup by Gerry and Patricia Galligan in 1997.
Sheelin Meats is a family run business which borders the four counties of Cavan, Longford Meath and Westmeath. The company has achieved its valued reputation for providing a range of premium quality products all year round at wholesale prices to the retail and catering trade, sourcing as much products as we can from local farmers and suppliers.
We have a full range of beef, lamb, pork, bacon and poultry products available at all times. We also have a selection of frozen products which include breaded and battered chicken and fish products, fingers foods, deserts and a wide range of potato products that include chips and wedges. We are the local distributor for Rosie & Jim chicken products for the Cavan, Monaghan, Longford, Westmeath and Meath areas.
The company also places a strong emphasis on product development and we are constantly working to produce new products. We have our own very popular burger and we also have a range of original and flavoured sausages, we are currently working on curing our own rasher including sweet and smoked. In 2002 we won the Local Enterprise Award for new product development and was runner up in the National Enterprise Awards and in 2014 we won retailer of the year in Co Cavan.
The business has expanded and diversified over the years and has grown from a one man operation to our current position where we currently employ 16 full time and three part time staff. In 2005 we opened our factory shop at Finea and we then later opened our two other shops, which are located in Virginia in 2012 and Mullingar in 2015.
