Past times-New Beginnings:

When Gerard McCarthy closed the door of Larkin’s Bakery for the final time a few weeks ago, it marked the end of an era in Baile an Mhuilinn and brought an end to a family tradition that spanned over five generations and 160 years, going back to 1859.

Larkin’s Bakery is proud to be Kerry’s longest established bakery and was honoured numerous times- winning awards particularly for their Larkins Tea Brack, Banana and Walnut bread not to mention their special Christmas Brack and their healthy brown bread.

Harrington’s Bakery, another family run bakery in Kenmare, have said ‘they are privileged and delighted to have the opportunity to continue producing Larkin’s Bakery quality products, using their original recipes and promise to endeavour to maintain the highest of standards Gerard and his team set over the past 45 years’.

Larkins Bakery have been very generous supporters of the GAA Club here in Milltown Castlemaine, particularly most recently when they supplied complimentary ‘Larkins Brack’b weekly for our Progressive 31 Card Drive. Our club here is very grateful to Gerard, Helen and their family for their generosity and we wish them health and happiness in the years ahead.


Congratulations to all those who have completed their college courses. While you may not be able to have the traditional graduation ceremony and toss your cap in the air, be very proud of your fantastic achievements-particularly in these very challenging times for students. Comhghairdeas!
