With four bacon factories operating at the heart of the city, the pig played a vital role in Limerick's economic and social life. O'Mara's, Matterson's, Denny's and Shaw's (later Clover meats) built an international reputation for Limerick ham and bacon and provided employment for thousands of families linking the city and the surrounding county in the production of bacon products. Based on oral histories and beautifully illustrated with archival images this is an accessible account of one of Limericks defining industries.
