The first Irish Knight of the Boudin Noir (Black Pudding)
Seán Kelly was the first man in Ireland to be made a Knight of the Boudin Noir which happened during a Civic Reception by County Manager Peter Hynes in Áras an Chontae in Castlebar in 2010. Earlier that day the town of Newport came to a standstill when the Knights of the Boudin Noir from Normandy in France paraded down the main street in full regalia, preceded by a full band. The visit also included a 7 course Kelly’s Pudding Menu at Knockranny House Hotel, especially created by Head Chef Seamus Commons. The Menu was entitled "Salute to the Putóg" and was serenaded by a poem of the same name.
The Pudding Pint gets a Gold Medal
Our innovative entry was literally a pint of Kelly's Black Pudding - in the exact shape and size of a pint of stout. It won a coveted gold award from the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Goute-Boudin, Mortagne-au-Perche, Normandy. 2011
