McCambridge's sold to Ireland's largest grocery distributor Musgrave

Thu, Aug 11, 2022

Galway's famous family-owned fine food shop McCambridge's has been sold to Irish grocery giant Musgrave Group.

The award-winning deli, wine outlet and restaurant is an institution in the city centre since opening its doors in 1922, and with three generations at the helm, the sale to Musgrave will come as a huge shock to Galwegians.

The current managing director Eoin, grandson of founder George, and sisters Natalie and Norma agreed to sell to wholesale and retail grocery giants Musgrave for an undisclosed sum after putting the business up for sale on the open market.
