@gone @Bog Man were Sherrards in Carlow at one stage, down in the Haymarket, later Delaneys and Pressure Hydraulics and now a high rise eyesore?
They were. Des Leybourne bought a Combine a forage harvester a small square Baler off them . Joe Mcdonell was the manager. If you wanted after hours service he was to be found in the bar at the golf club. Did Keenanโ€™s end up owning Sherrads ??

Now that you mention it, I remember someone talking about some connection or other.

Heard it about a fortnight ago. Yerman with the runaway bale trailer is rumoured to have a farm bought near bandon. Hes on the hunt for farm for a while now, a few stories about that as well but cant mention here!!! Hes selling 3 bits of land and a house in carrigaline. That could be to fund car purchases too, theres been 2 cars crashed since the episode with the tanker!!!
the big farm in bandon is sold to someone from carrigaline afaik big bucks too

Keenans bought Sherrards in 1976 and the whole lot went wallop in 1982. My father was working for Keenans at the time.
I had the first year of my apprenticeship done in Anco and was in Keenans for work experience and they were giving me a job after the Christmas but AIB got their hands on the place before that. There was some amount of stuff disappeared out of the place when the announcement was made.

The father always said they would have traded out of the difficulties no problem but the bank pulled the plug.
