Belturbet cheese scoops super gold

Silke Cropp with her award winning cheese

Handmade cheese made by a mother and son team in Belturbet, Co Cavan has been ranked in the top 2% in the world, after being awarded a Super Gold award at the World Cheese Awards in Spain.


Corleggy hard raw goats milk cheese is made by Silke and Tom Cropp in Belturbet.
It was one of only 66 of the 3,021 cheeses on show at the awards in San Sebastian to attain Super Gold status.
Expert judges have ranked Corleggy cheese to be among the finest cheeses in the world.


While highly commended, it did not win the title of World Champion Cheese.
