The cheese and onion pie is the Cork delicacy we all need in our lives

Potato in batter? Count us in.

CORK IS A TREASURE trove of chipper delicacies. There’s the breast in a bun from Hillbilly’s, the King Creole from KC’s, and the Sloppy Foley from Murphy’s.

But there’s still more where those came from – and it’s time to shine a light on the potato pie.

It’s not a pie as we know it, so much as a ball of battered mashed potato similar enough to Tipperary’s ‘spud ball’ –  and no one does it better than Jackie Lennox’s on the Bandon Road.

Their delectable cheese and onion pie has a particularly rabid following.

Just look at all that batter

They’re the perfect accompaniment to fish

Or just with chips, for maximum carby goodness

Just don’t forget the sauce

A cheese and onion pie never lets you down

And people would do just about anything for them

We’re not surprised, TBH.
