SASTA Sausages, a regular fixture at Tralee Farmers Market and Taste of Kerry events in Manor West, has won two major prizes in France last night at the ‘World Cup’ of sausage and pudding producers.

And they’ll be in Manor West tomorrow, so you can taste the best sausage in Ireland and the UK!

The Commanderie des Fins Goustiers du Duché d’Alençon awards announced their Europewide awards last night and Sásta’s white pudding was awarded the Grand Prix d’Honneur in the Ireland area.

But better than that,  his sausage won the overall Best in Ireland and Great Britain in the Championnat D’Europe De La Saucisse Grilleé category.

“We beat off the big sausage producers,” said John Paul O’Connor of the Killorglin business. “That’s regarded as the ‘World Cup’ of sausage making and white pudding. All the top companies strive to win that because it’s an extremely prestigious competition. It’s a big thing for a small producer to be able to win that.”

This isn’t the first time his produce has been honoured. Last year he scooped the Overall Award in Ireland and Great Britain for his white pudding.

John Paul will travel over the city in Normandy to collect his trophies at a huge prize-giving ceremony on November 22.

“I’ll have the cup from last year on show this Saturday and Sunday at the Taste of Kerry event in Manor West and after I collect the other two next month, I’ll have the three of them there before Christmas! We’re as good now as the Kerry team,” laughed John Paul.

You can sample John Paul’s sausage at the Taste of Kerry event which takes place at the Manor West Retail Park from noon to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.
