Richard’s Meats started in Balgowlah
When William Walsh left the lush countryside of Tipperary, Ireland in 1965 to relocate his family to Sydney, Australia, he never envisaged that his son and grandson would follow him into the butchering business.
William had numerous butcher shops in Ireland and even provided a door to door service in rural Ireland long before online shopping existed.
On his arrival in Australia, he purchased a shop in East Roseville where he worked for nine years. He also purchased a business in Dee Why and later in Balgowlah. It was in Balgowlah that his son Richard joined him in 1973 during his apprenticeship and working together until William retired from butchering in 1979.
Richard carried on the business there and was joined by his son Ross in 2003, where they carried on the family business until 2013.
Richard and Ross Walsh relaunched their new store Richard’s Meats at Roseberry Street, Balgowlah in November 2014.
