Seamus and Kevin Sheridan | Litfest A Food and Drinks Literacy Festival at Ballymaloe

Seamus and Kevin Sheridan established Sheridans Cheesemongers in 1995 with a cheese stall at the Galway Saturday Market in the west of Ireland. Since then the company has grown to include four cheese shops and a thriving wholesale business as well as exporting Irish food around the world. The brothers’ food and business ethos is still firmly routed to the simplicity of their first market stall. Their passion for food and respect for those who produce it has led them to be at the forefront of an exciting revival in Ireland's culinary heritage.

Seamus and Kevin are tireless advocates for sustainable food and farming. They are both supporters of the Slow-food movement. Seamus is currently spokesperson on agriculture and food for The Irish Green Party and Kevin is chair of the Irish Taste Council.
