Just a sample of the tasty treats for National Bread Week

Bath Buns, French Sticks, London Bloomers, sour dough and spelt bread were some of the many healthy and tasty treats produced by young people at Limerick Youth Service (LYS) as part of the recent National Bread Week.

The young people, who are trainees with LYS’s Bakery Skills Project, spent the week baking bread and creating some of their own unique designs.

‘National Bread Week showcases the nutritional benefits of bread and the many ways you can enjoy it,’ said Paul O’Brien, LYS.

Another key feature of National Bread Week is that it highlights the rich heritage and employment opportunities within the Ireland’s bread industry.

‘From artisan bakeries to industrial factories, there are vast employment opportunities in the baking sector with many of our graduates enjoying careers in it,’ said Paul, baking instructor with LYS.

The good news for Limerick is that the delicious and healthy treats are not confined to National Bread Week and can be purchased at LYS’s Community Training Centre, Lr. Glentworth St, Limerick throughout the week.

Supported by Solas and the Limerick Clare Educational Training Board, LYS’s Bakery Skills Project FDQ accredited Bakery Skills Project.

A member of Youth Work Ireland, Limerick Youth Service remains committed to supporting and encouraging young people to be active participants in shaping their futures.
