The Johnston family set up a bakery in Dublin before coming together with
master bakers Mooney and O’Brien to share their baking expertise and
craftsmanship to form Johnston Mooney & O’Brien.
One of our founding bakers, Mr John Mooney.
Johnston Mooney and O’Brien bread and cakes, especially made-to-order birthday and wedding cakes, are in high demand
We have ten Johnston Mooney and O’Brien Bread and Cake shops in Finglas, Cabra, Kimmage, Camden Street, Rathmines, Parnell Square, Dominick Street, Capel Street, Stillorgan and Dun Laoghaire to keep up with demand.
We introduce Ireland to the ‘sliced loaf’ as we begin slicing our bread in the mid 1930′s. Making life just that bit simpler.
In the mid 1960′s, we replace our horse and cart deliveries with a new fleet of electric vans. The retired horses go on to pastures new.
In the 1980′s, we replace the electric van fleet with the distinctive diesel vans that you see on Irish roads today.
We move our bread to the Jamestown Rd., Finglas bakery - where it remains today.
Our Bundy brand launches introducing an American-style sponge and dough bun recipe to Ireland and is baked in Clonee, Co. Meath.
Butterkrust joins the Johnston Mooney and O’Brien family of baked goods.
The launch of our new brand identity and tagline “History in the Baking”.
