EP Mooney in the Avonbeg Industrial estate, longmile road, Dublin. has a small selection. Crocodile crafts, in Lacken Blessington, Wicklow has whatever Tandy stock; good quality stuff, and expensive.

Over the last while, I've been getting my leather from Le Prevo in the UK. They are really great; let them know what you are looking for, they'll send you over some samples, and they'll post you whatever you ask for. Postal rates from the UK are based by weight, and dry leather is cheap! I think I got a 2sq/m leather hide recently for 150 plus 20 quid postage.

Unless you specifically want the leather that furnishes the inside of cars (and want to buy it with the car attached), I suggest you try R.J. Mooneys on the longmile road, as EP Mooneys is an automobile dealer! :D

Tommy, could you give him a shout and see can you get a list of example stock ? It might be useful. Le Prevo have a website and do pretty much everything, while Mooneys have a very small selection these days.

yeah, it would be good to have a local supplier for leather (ideally Vegi tan) - at the moment I am buying in England
