The Stokehole Stone Stoves based in Tooreen, Dunmanway is well-known as a pioneer of the revolutionary stone stove (or Finovens as they are also known) – some of which are manufactured here in West Cork. These stone stoves, with their heat retaining properties, are a vast improvement on the traditional stove and fireplace and have been tried, tested and proven for generations on the continent.

Now, this innovative West Cork company is introducing us to more efficient and higher quality ways of water heating with Hoxter water heating insert stoves from the Czech republic, and quality Lohberger cookers and ranges. They also bring us the Mondex Electric storage stone radiators.

Hoxter inserts make it possible to get hot water from your insert stove in a very clean and efficient way. Because hot water makes up a large part of our daily water consumption, the stove is a very useful resource. Advanced technology turns our boiler fireplace inserts into much more than just an additional energy source. Everything you normally use hot water for can be done just the same with water-heating stoves. Whether it’s a hot bath, a warm shower or perhaps the homely warmth of underfloor heating, you can always produce the hot water you need with water-heating fireplace inserts.

An established company, Hoxter offers super efficient and clean burning dry and boiler inserts made from heavy grade long lasting materials.

Lohberger produces top quality small and large woodburning ranges and cookers, free standing boilers and dry stoves.

All of these new woodburning products make use of calculated extra turbulence in the fireboxes reaching combustion temperatures up to 12000 C therefore saving fast amounts of fuel.  All are compliant with the new 2016 European heating efficiency, emissions and fine particle regulation.

Mondex electric stone storage radiators are always made of genuine stone. Genuine stone radiators are not only beautiful and ageless heaters but also impressive interior decoration elements. Choose the stone colour which you like most. The electronic radiator thermostat measures the temperature keenly and works totally silent. The massive stone stores a lot of heat and releases it steadily over a long time period. Because of this the radiator does not cause a feeling of draught. Besides the surface temperature of the stone is lower comparing with other radiators, which makes it also for children safe and pleasant.

Rather than solely functional items, Finovens and fireplaces are attractive focal pieces, which dramatically enhance a home. They can vary dramatically in size and can be custom-made to suit their intended environment. shows this variety and explains in depth the advantages of the heat retaining system.

Their showroom is open by appointment and will give you a new feel and insight into heating.  Alfred and Emma  can be contacted at 023 8855454 / 086 8072022 or take a look at their website

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing
