THE LIFE OF PIE

EUGENE & RONAN GREANEY THE DOUGH BROS

“A family trip to Naples, back in the day” was the driving forza for Ronan and Eugene Greaney, the Galway brothers behind foodtruck-turned-restaurant The Dough Bros. “Seeing pizza being made the ‘proper’ way with the wood-fired oven and the theatre of the Italians tossing the dough was something that stuck with us as kids. We’d never had a pizza like it in Ireland before so we took a chance and gave it a go,” says Eugene. Today, the outfit prides itself on “fun dining over fine dining” with local Irish produce at its

heart. “We’ve been staying with dairy farmers, charcuterie makers, bee farmers all over the country, learning firsthand the quality of food we have on our doorstep, as well as the process and heritage behind it. Knowledge is power,” says Ronan. On brotherly love, he says: “In a non-soppy way we’ve been very close since kids, sharing a room growing up in the family house, to now having a business together. We’ll always have each other’s back, which is a pretty integral trait to have between partners.” thedoughbros.ie
