Chocolates are heaven sent for nuns

GLUTTONY may be one of the seven deadly sins but a group of nuns in Galway are turning a blind eye to the failing as their chocolate-making business takes off.

The high demand for chocolate made by the Benedictine nuns at Kylemore Abbey has seen them double the number of their staff from two to four.

The nuns first started producing the tasty treats back in 2010 after they closed their world-famous boarding school and were left with a fully-fitted kitchen lying idle.

"The chocolates are very popular with tourists but they also have a big following among the local community that buy them regularly," said Sr Genevieve.
