Prime Lamb served by Alfie Murray Family Butchers

Following the success at the 2021 Royal Ulster Premier Beef and Lamb Championships, Alfie Murray Family Butchers is dishing up a treat for customers this January with top-quality, prize-winning lamb available from now until Christmas.

Following the 2021 Royal Ulster Premier Beef & Lamb Championships held at Eikon Exhibition Centre, Balmoral Park, Lisburn, the Killyleagh based butcher purchased the Champion pair of Suffolk Lambs Over 42.5kg, Champion pairs of Dorset Lambs 36 -42.5kg & Over 42.5kg and the Best of Any Other Breed Over 42.5kg.

Prime cuts of lamb from the show are now on sale at the longest established butcher’s shops in Northern Ireland on the shores of Strangford Lough as well as the EuroSpar in Crossgar.

Having been in operation for over 60 years, this popular butcher shop is owned by three generations of the Murray family – Alfie senior, Alfie junior and Ryan.

Alfie Murray Jnr said: “Northern Ireland produces some of the best lamb in the world and I am delighted to have bought top quality livestock from the Royal Ulster Premier Beef & Lamb Championships.

This year the kill out rate was above average with a good yield on all the lambs. Our customers are delighted with the quality of meat and the prime cuts will be available to buy in the lead up to Christmas.”
