    George. Great news. Do you have any idea what state in Australia we can purchase these cheeses. Coles here where I shop occasionally used to sell some great Irish Blueberry muffins until some clown from Victoria came on the TV mouthing off about these stores importing the dough from Ireland. I never thought a big company like Coles would bow to this wimp from Melbourne. When I contacted there head office there answer to me was they were not selling. Well I told them that was a load of bull. And was it a coincidence that these same muffins in the same packages are back in there store labelled ‘COLES BAKED” I made it quite clear that our association will not be purchasing these items until “made in Ireland” is back on the label again where the dough was coming from. They were absolutely lovely and a great talking point at our morning coffee’s.

    George. I have just been in touch with “THE SMELLY CHEESE SHOP” in Adelaide and spoke to Annie. We will certainly be supporting the Irish cheese. A great name for the shop. Thanks once again George. We would never have known about this if it was not for you. Of course South Australia is a foreign country to the rest of Australia. HA’
