Macroom Buffalo Mozzarella, by Macroom Buffalo Cheese based in Clonclud, Macroom, has been named the Reserve Champion for the best ‘other milk’ cheese at The Irish Cheese Awards 2015. 36 Irish cheesemakers were awarded at the most prestigious awards in the Irish cheese industry calendar. The Irish Cheese Awards is the only competition dedicated entirely to Irish cheese. 145 cheeses from 29 companies from all over Ireland were judged in 12 classes by a panel of experts.

For the first time at the Irish Cheese Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to cheese maker Veronica Steele from Milleen’s Cheese, for her outstanding contribution to the farmhouse cheese industry. Veronica and her husband Norman began producing cheese in 1976 in West Cork and she is regarded as one of Ireland’s first farmhouse cheese producers. Veronica was a pioneer in the farmhouse cheese revolution and found herself mentoring and tutoring other aspiring cheese makers.
