Where did it all begin? Mardi Confectionery was the creation of Raymond McDonough (1953-2004). Tuesday was an auspicious day in his family hence the name ” Mardi” , French for Tuesday. It began in a gate lodge belonging to the Franciscan Monks on Seafield Road Killiney. His life partner David Brett and childhood friend Phil Stokes were persuaded to join him and the first delivery was planned for a Friday September 1971. However due to problems with gas installation this had to be postponed to the following Tuesday. The company flourished, moving to an in industrial premise in 1981. It continued apace through good times and bad aquiring many prestigious customers for it’s French inspired products until May 2016. At that point Thunder’s bakery, owned by Sinead and Stephen Heffernan took it over to continue running Mardi with it’s ethos of delicious handcrafted products.
