There are many famous foods that have Protected Geographical Indication status; parma ham, champagne, and our own Waterford Blaa. Hopefully soon Ireland can add another to that list - boxty!

Aine Faughnan's family have been making Dromod Boxty in Leitrim for the last 30 years, and after winning the Grow With Aldi competition last year they have brought the potato dish nationwide.

Boxty goes back to the 1700's and originates from Leitrim, Cavan, Sligo, and Mayo. It declined during the famine, but has stayed a staple in these counties.

Aine has teamed up with other boxty producers and they hope to have an answer on its PGI status very soon. If it does get this status, it can only be made in that region and in the traditional way.
