When the couple moved to Galway they found a hotel that allowed Kieron to perfect his style of cookery. Making everything fresh - from chips to the beautiful jams, chutneys & relishes, Kieron developed the values and recipes that would later form the cornerstone of Moran's Megajam.
The products in Moran's Mega jam are made in Ballinagh, Co.Cavan from only fresh, locally sourced ingredients, handmade to the same perfected recipes, and sold through local artisan shops,craft butchers and Supervalu stores nationwide.

Both Kieron and Claire trained in Catering at DIT Cathal Brugha Street and over the last two decades worked across Ireland in some of the country’s best hotels and catering establishments.

The Moran's Mega Jam Philosophy
Our philosophy is to always use the finest, freshest ingredients possible and source as much as we can from local growers and producers. Over the years Kieron and Claire Moran have experimented with many different ingredients and spices, always using what’s in season.
By always choosing local we know that we always get the best produce and at a reasonable price. All our ingredients are prepared fresh by hand. We do not use processed foods, colourings or artificial flavourings. This ensures that all our tried and tested recipes are at the highest quality and consistency.
