To mark National Fish and Chips day this week, we decided to run a poll to find the best chip shop in the county.
It was a close run race, but we have found a winner in our poll to crown Offaly's best chipper. Thousands of votes were cast last week and after narrowing it down to a Top 5, a two horse race emerged between Golden Fries in Edenderry and Angelo's of Banagher.
Golden Fries pulled out an early lead but over the last two days, a flurry of votes has seen Angelo's in Banagher crowned Offaly's best chipper. Emerging with 35% of the vote, the Banagher establishment staved off Golden Fries, which amassed 32%.
Stewart's of Clara was third with 12%, Macari's in Tullamore fourth with 11% and Tony's of Birr rounded out the top 5 with 10% of the overall vote.
A certificate from the Offaly Express is now on its way to Offaly's finest chippy in Banagher.
