Made in Ireland Episode 5 Promo 2
Episode 5, Broadcast on the 31st October 2011 on the Today with Pat Kenny Show, presented by Ella McSweeney Pain Blanc, Waterford-style A small, rotund, white floury bap tells the story of the French Huguenots who arrived in Waterford in the late 1600s. Persecuted in France, they came to east Ireland and set up industries such as linen making, but it was their bakers who inspired the local people. White flour, imported from France, was used to make ‘pain blanc’ - white bread. The locals loved it so much, they made it their own. Today, over 20,000 Waterford Blaas are made every day and Dermot Walsh, a third generation baker whose family have been making bread since the 1920s, is a dab-hand at the Blaa.

Shoes, saddles, sofas - our leather was in demand. But today, there are no tanneries left in the country and only a handful of people are working with leather. Ella meets Willie Power, who spent decades working in Portlaw Tannery in Waterford; she also talks to Paul Ronan who ran the last tannery in Ireland. George Tutty is one man who uses leather every day - for 60 years his family has handmade shoes in Kildare. Ella meets him to find out more.
