Leitrim Boxty Festival
Kicking off on Saturday 19 October in Carrick-on-Shannon, there will be exhibitions, talks, tastings, music, dance and of course lots of boxty. Organisers say boxty will be available on breakfast, lunch and dinner menus in eateries throughout the town so whether you’re a well-seasoned fan or a novice in search of your first bite, Leitrim is the place to be for all your boxty related needs. See, everyone loves boxty! Made of grated raw potatoes, mashed cooked potatoes, with flour added as a binding agent, it is then boiled, baked or formed as a pancake and fried.
