The Urney leprechaun made its debut in 1919 when Eileen and Harry Gallagher first ventured into the confectionery business. Over 40 years later and a move south to Tallaght, Co. Dublin, Urney Chocolates and its subsidiaries were employing almost 1,000 workers. At that time it was considered one of the largest chocolate factories in Europe, a far cry from its modest beginnings in the parish of Urney, Co. Tyrone. This beautifully illustrated book tells the captivating tale of the rise and fall of Urney Chocolates and offers a fascinating slice of Irish social history.
