Thirty-two ounce steaks are not to be scopped off, but devouring them with coleslaw, onion rings and chips is no mean feat.

Step up Lacken man Tom Kelly who wasn't lackin' in appetite when he made short work of the plate filling piece of sirloin, leaving his nine other competitors groaning, belly's full, in his wake.

The Fourth of July event at Lisa's newly refurbished cafe in Dermot Kehoe's attracted 40,000 views on Facebook, such was its popularity.

With big ribs and barbecue food courtesy of Dessie Kehoe also on the menu for the day, there was a buzz of excitement around the cafe.

Vera Delaney who helped to organise the event, said: 'People were tagging people from different counties on Facebook, so the event went down well.'

She said the competitors found it difficult to clean their plates. 'People were struggling to get through the steak alone, but it was the chips and coleslaw that proved too much for them.'

Vera said similar events will be held at the cafe, which opened in 2015, in future.
