O'Donnell's Bakery

Marketing and product manufacturing internship in a thriving bakery

Unfortunately, in 2010 after a tough financial year O’Donnells bakery went into liquidation. This is when Bread Agent Andrew McElhinney stepped up and bought the bakery saving local jobs in Donegal.

Since then the bakery has gone from strength to strength and has gained customers from all over the north and south of Ireland including Donegal, Galway, Roscommon, Leitrim, Cavan, Monaghan, Fermanagh, Tyrone, Derry and Armagh.

In 2016 they began exporting to the USA after a marketing mission. They are currently supplying in fruit teascones, brack, soda farls and potato bread. These products have been a huge success so far.
