Anybody know anywhere in Dublin that sells canvas?

Thanks,

What type are you looking for?
Murphy Sheehy definitely do, not sure of their current pricing - they are city center, between Powerscourt town house and george's street arcade. I think they also have a place in Dun Laoire.

We got ours in Belfast, but that was '99.
Canvas Irlanda in Limerick do plastic backed stuff for ground sheets.
I'm currently looking for chandlers in Cork might do sail canvas.

Thanks folks :)

And thanks Brendan, I had totally forgotten about Murphy Sheehy. Ordered a tent off 'Past Tents' but it'll be 14-17 weeks before it arrives so going to have a stab at making one myself...Will keep me busy I'm sure :roll:

I've gotten 'cheap' canvas from Bernie the Bolt before. Google can give you his email address. He's a very cheap source, though he won't always stock it. Dave, do you have any idea for prices from Canvas Irlanda ? I'd also love to start making up a tent or two...

I don't. Not even sure if they still exist. It's down the list of things to look in to. Trying to get past Crag gig then got Caherconnell one to design for heritage week.
