The people behind Bó Rua

Bó Rua Farm is home to  three generations of the Dinneen family. Tom and Norma take care of our cows, handcraft our cheese and distribute it our loyal customers. Grandparents Michael and Margaret continue to play an active role on the farm and the youngest Dinneen’s help out too: Méabh, Áine and Tadhg are our chief cheese tasters.

We understand that great cheesemaking is a craft. We know that it takes time, dedication, care and expertise to craft award-winning cheese from the very best milk produced by our cows. Our hard work and attention to detail has paid of with numerous awards including the Gold Medal for Best Irish Hard Cheese at The Blas na hEireann – Irish Food Awards in 2019 and Two Stars at the Great Taste Awards in 2020.
