There is only one local abattoir left in Middleton. It's owned by Frank Murphy, who is the 8th generation butcher in his shop. He cycles too and from the abattoir which is located in a lane way parallel to his butcher shop on Middleton main street. When Frank was younger, there were 7 abattoirs in the town. He talks to Ella about his life as a butcher and abattoir owner, and his 94 year old father Dan remembers what meat his customers bought in the past. #AthenaMedia #butchers #EllaMcsweeney #farm #farming #ireland #irish #MadeInIreland #rte #RteRadio1 #LocalAbattoirs #abattoir #TraditionalButchers
