Two of the dishes that have made their café a firm favourite

31st January, 2016
Curry made with Castlemine Farm lamb

THIS week, the McMahon family of Rua in Castlebar, Co Mayo (, which was recently announced as Bord Bia’s Just Ask restaurant of the year for 2016, share two of the dishes that have made their café a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike.

We use Castlemine Farm lamb from Co Roscommon for this dish – it’s a wonderfully fragrant and wholesome curry.
