  2. Sheila

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my husband-to-be because he’s great in the kitchen and currently I’m driving him demented in the last few weeks in the run up to our big day.

  3. mac léinn

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to the little brother because although he thinks he’s a long-distance runner, he’s recovering from injury and I think there’s a future for him in triathlons. For that he needs… protein brah! *puts on flatpeak, punches wall*

  4. thefatlad

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me because now that I’ve found out that “fats are good for you” I’ve regularly been injecting myself with olive oil, “proper” butter and bacon grease. Yet I don’t feel I’m reaching my full potential of fats and drippings.
    Fat by name, Fat by nature!

  5. David Cogan

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to Leigha Finn because shes dripping.

  6. Paddy

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to myself please because I have been looking for this product nearly everywhere with no luck. As an avid carnivore, I can’t think of of a finer way to introduce more meat based products into my diet. Steak fried in dripping, Omnomnomnom :)

  7. Alfred E. Neumann

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my friend Miriam because she recently fell spectacularly from the veg-wagon, after twenty frugal years. How spectacularly? She started with a small taste of salami, and within a day she was literally dabbing steak-blood off her plate and sucking her fingers. Strong men shied away. Dogs hid under cars.

    I’m sure she’ll find a good use for James’ dripping, either eating it with a spoon or smearing it on her body before she goes hunting. Just stay away if you look at all succulent.

  8. Brian

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me because my wife is a vegetarian and I could place meat all over the house to freak her out !

  9. TonyR

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my wife, cos she deserves something “tremendous, deep & beefy”

  10. Nessy

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my Dad Robert because after 20 years of being a vegetarian, and him being a former butcher, it’s the least I could do for all the lost Christmas turkeys and hams we could have had together.

  11. Aga

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my two daughters (2 + 8 years old) because I can fry them some piping hot after-school cutlets with it, oh and the gravy I could make too! I usually use pork fat but can already imagine how tasty this is (love using natural beef stock for soups).

  12. Tommy T

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me bird Avril because she can plump me up for the returning college year, I’ve only got a size 30 waist.

  13. James Collery

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me as I love beef I do. Love it. Beef beef beef. Beefy beefy beefy. Nom nom nom. Beef. Beeeeeeeeef. Beef. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeef. When I press the horn in my car it goes Beef Beef. That’s how much I love the beef. Beef. No better meat. Beef. For the more sophisticated (wo)man. Beef. I made a suit out of beef steaks once. Felt pretty cool against my skin. I could use the dripping as hair gel. Because I looooooove Beef.

  14. Bobsicle

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my girlfriend as she has just moved into a new place and has been living off plain pasta for the last week after paying her rent. She could really do with some beefy goodness and this hamper would fulfil her meat loving addiction

  15. Drogg

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to Wife Lisa because she is meat mad and pregnant and if you give her this meat is means she won’t send me out at stupid o’clock in the morn to find her a burger.

  16. Frilly Keane, Anyone?

    Please just send a skip load of that dripping to the Tipp dressing room on Sunday. Its winning streak might rub off on the lads. Hon’Tipp.

  18. Ian Madden

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me because I’ve never been one to turn down a good old fashioned beef injection.

  19. Itchysays

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my Aunt Phil because her mother, my Nan back in the day…used to make the greatest brown soda bread you could ever imagine which she then elevated to even dizzier heights of taste when fried in Beef Dripping ( the memory literally makes me salivate)…neither my aunt or I have, despite years of attempts, come close to replicating such a taste but I feel this hamper would be the missing ingredient (s) !
    Please and thank you too…..

  20. RC

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to the wife because she makes beef dripping chips with them and they are glorious! I’ll send you some if you do…

      1. Clampers Outside!

        The truth is my Mam is a psychiatric nurse who has the pleasure of tucking Mani into his bed straps every night, and Mani tends to let his mind wander when she leans over the poor guy to secure him to his bed…. Mani sometimes mistakes the place for a BDSM room, and Mum says it’s best just to let him think about the stuff he likes. Poor lad.

          1. Mani

            To be honest I was hurt that anyone would think I wasn’t sufficiently stimulating his mother prior to coitus.

  21. Norm

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my friend Angus as he was filmed by Broadsheet at the spring show in the RDS with google grass (you should have seen his reaction) without consent and may suet if he doesn’t bring home the bacon.

  22. andyourpointiswhatexactly

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my Mum because of her tremendous joke on the subject: Man in Butchers to Butcher’s Wife: “Madam, do you keep dripping?” Butcher’s Wife: “Once a month, somethin’ terrible”.

  23. PaddyMacWack

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my wife & I because we are trying to cook better food from scratch for our 2 year old daughter and not bother with premade frozen rubbish!

  24. GangstaTim

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my mother because although we have had our ups and downs she has always been there when I needed her and never ceases to amaze me with her generosity towards others.

  25. Sarah Mc

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to ,my lovely fella Bryan because there’s only 1 minutes left to enter this competition and I know he’s only gasping for a bit of Drippin’!!

  26. Stephen Kelly

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my wife Lisa trying to find food that all 5 (not a misprint) of our kids like is like negotiating a maze backwards!!

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me because if you be shippin’ the drippin’ I can taste what he says in the press clippin’.

  28. CeeraK

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my lovely boyfriend Steve who recently sent me flowers all the way from Kerry on my unwilling return to school! And just like you’re hampers he’s tremendous, deep and totally beefy!

  29. Murtles

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me as, like leprechauns, unicorns, space badgers and welly free Leitrimers, I believe that “Dripping” is just a figment of peoples imaginations and does not exist except in tales of olden days of pans on open fires and farmers drinking tay out of bottles while footing turf. Prove me wrong.

  30. RichD

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me(!) because my mum & dad are coming to visit for a few days soon, they don’t have much in the way of spare funds (nor do I for that matter), and I’d really love to treat them to a few good old fashioned home (son) cooked family meals – and it’s about time I looked after them for a change I reckon.

  31. the good helen

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to My 4 year old son – because all he wants to eat day in and day out is sausages!!!! Sausages!!! and more Sausages! erm, i’m assuming there are some sausages in this hamper. Thanks, PS. its my birthday, Just saying.. ahem.

  32. eeef

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my husband because the last time he saw this much meat in a basket was when his fat uncle passed away.

  33. Becca

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my mom because my family hasn’t had a good Sunday roast in a long, long time. We used to order James Whelan meat a lot back in the better off days, but sticking the two of us through college means that my parents have had to cut corners big time, and one of the first things to go was quality meat.

  34. Maeve

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan Hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my boyfriend Cian as I am moving to London in the morning and he would really appreciate a lovely hamper to cuddle in my absence.

  35. Jonjo

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my mate sambo phelan because apart from the fact im inviting him to my upcoming barbeque and this would be a welcome additon to his under arm luggage, he lives in Rathcoole and I dont think anyone has told him its in Co. Wicklow.

  36. fluffybiscuits

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my friend Stephen in Dublin, he found out his dad was not well recently and well it would be a nice surprise for him just to put a smile on his face.

  37. serveandreturn

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me as all I have to get me through the commute home is a pear, and the thought of this would sustain me. It’s a public safety issue at the end of the day, I’m wobbly enough on the bike as is.

  38. TheButcherBoy

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me da because he’s Whelan in the years, thinking of the daycent butchers way back when, looking at the picture of James and his meat there.

  39. Isthepopeacatlick

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my brother who gets the keys to his new house on Friday, after months upon months of being sale agreed and suffering an unhelpful estate agent. Nothing would attract box carrying support like the promise of ‘Beef Dripping’ and ‘tremendous beef flavour’, and I might get to rob a box for myself too when he’s not looking.

  40. Ahjayzis

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me mammy in Celbridge because the poor cratur was raised on proper country killed-today MEESH and since she’s gone back to college part time, all the poor woman is getting is ready meals from her lackadaisical husband and son and wouldn’t she be only too well of a decent bit of drippin’.

  41. Mark

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my dad because he has been using frytex for years and years and my mother would love to be looking at another wax papered fat sitting in her fridge. He’s due for a hip replacement next week so a good blitz of the finest red meat dripping in dripping would help his pre op no end!

  42. Gordon

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to my Dad Douglas because he loves messin’ around in the kitchen and I’ll probably get a massive feed out of it – hmmm…dripping

  43. Ham A Lot

    Would you ever just send the James Whelan hamper (with prize winning dripping) to me because my girlfriend says I’m not beefy enough and she’s started going to the local meat market every Friday night to have a butchers’ at some other meatier tasty morsels

  44. Brian

    ……to yours truly ‘cos I’m prone to a bulletproof coffee now and then(grassfed butter / coconut oil / MCT oil) and I bet coffee is delicious with lard.
