Salann Mara Acla

Cuireadh an gnólacht teaghlaigh Salann Mara Acla ar bun ag tús an tsamhraidh in 2013 ar Oileán Acla, i gContae Mhaigh Eo. Rith sé le Ciarán Ó Máille agus a bhean chéile, Marjorie, gnó salann mara a thriail tar éis clár faisnéise a fheiceáil ar an teilifís agus le breis taighde d'aimsigh siad leabhar staire aitiúil faoi tháirgeacht salann a bhí ar siúl sa cheantar go luath sa naoú haois déag.


Thosaigh siad an próiseas sa chistin ag galú an uisce den uisce sáile ón bhfarraige agus bhí an chéad chainníocht réidh le díol sa mhargadh áitiúil ag tús mhí Iúil. Tá an gnó ag dul i méid ó shin agus tá a dtáirge ar fáil i neart siopaí móra ar fud Mhaigh Eo agus tá neart cócairí cáiliúla ag baint úsáide as ina mbialanna agus óstáin i Maigh Eo agus i gCathair na Gaillimhe.


Beidh Salann Mara Acla ag bogadh ón gcistin go haonad trachtála go gairid ionas go mbeidh siad in ann níos mó a tháirgeadh chun an t-éileamh a shásamh.

Achill Island Sea Salt, a family run business, was started during the Summer of 2013 on Achill Island, Co. Mayo. After watching a documentary about sea salt production and reading a book about the history of salt production in Achill in the early 19th century, Marjorie and husband Ciarán Ó Máille decided to try it out.

They began the process in their kitchen, of evaporating the water from the salt water they collected from the sea. By the beginning of July, the first batch was produced and Achill Island Sea Salt was ready for business.Since then, the demand has rapidly increased with the product being distributed to major retailers across Mayo.Top end chefs are also using it in restaurants and hotels across Mayo and Galway.

Ciarán and Marjorie are in the process of relocating the business from their kitchen to a much bigger premises in order to increase their supply capabilities and satisfy the increasing demand for the distinctive flavour of Achill Island Sea Salt. Salann Mara Acla can be purchased in Café Rua, Castlebar or for a stockist near you, please see the website below.
