Sheepskins

Postby Cathal on Wed Nov 16, 2011 3:16 pm

Hi everyone!

I wonder if anyone here knows where to obtain irish sheepskins, preferably local tanned. There's some stuff around, i.e. the 25-Euro IKEA skins - but I don't want to rest my ass on a possible chemical bomb which travelled twice around the globe...
As we're going to establish a household down in Tipptown at the moment, we want to buy as much as possible local. Any suggestions??

Thanks for your help,
Stefan

Hi Stefan
There is a company down in Wexford or Waterford doing them I will find out the details and get back to you.
All the best.

Stefan - if you want to buy from an Irish source you won't do better than Iain Barber who is based in Dublin. He's over at Manc right now - but in Jan he will likely have a bit of surplus. If you're interested drop me a PM.

Thanks for the quick replys. I had some troubles with my f**** internet connection and couldn't drop in erlier.

@ Martin: I think I met Bernie at the reenactment fair in Minden/Germany last October. A trip to England to get three or four skins would be a bit too excessive for some poor Vikings. Remember, we do not belong to the Roman Empire!!

@ Barry: Sounds good! Please give me a shout when you know more

@ Swifty: We're back in Tipp from Christmas to mid Jan. So I'm really interested indeed!
