About the Book
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 was considered one of the largest chocolate factories on Europe - a far cry from its modest beginnings in the parish of Urney, Co. Tyrone. This book tells the captivating tale of the rise and fall of Urney Chocolates and offers a fascinating slice of Irish social history.
