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

Ballineen Foróige Young Engineers Exhibition 23 February 2018

The inaugural Ballineen Foróige Young Engineers Exhibition will take place in Gort Mhuire Hall in Ballineen this Friday 23rd February. As part of Engineers Week 2018, leaders and members of Ballineen Foróige Club have organised an exhibition which will showcase a diverse and exciting range of engineering projects that have been undertaken by members of the club over the last few weeks, with the aid of leaders and a number of local engineers.

With the aid of local pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly, along with the support of STEAM Education, a UCC based company focused on promoting science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths subjects in primary schools, Ballineen Foróige has been engaging members and leaders in all things engineering over the last six weeks. From researching, designing, and prototyping a project based on local problems, to participating in various workshops on coding and careers in engineering, Ballineen Foróige have been extremely busy in preparation for the exhibition this coming Friday night.

On the night itself, Michael Loftus, Head of Engineering at CIT, Fintan Goold, Manager at Eli Lilly and All-Ireland Cork winning Footballer, along with Geraldine Coughlan of GCA Architects & Designers, a local business, will act as judges on the night, evaluating the different engineering projects and offering some advice to the members of the club. Also in attendance will be the CEO of Foróige Seán Campbell, along with a number of local councillors, TD’s and Senators.

Leading the team of Ballineen Foróige leaders organising the event, is Rebecca Dwyer, a bioprocess engineer at Eli Lilly. Rebecca recently became a leader in the club and says that Ballineen Foróige Young Engineer Exhibition 2018 “promises to be a fun, challenging and rewarding experience for all involved and we look forward to welcoming parents, relatives, friends and members of the public to the exhibition and film screening on the evening of Friday 23rd February.” Overall, there are twelve projects entered in the exhibition. One project, led by Cian Kennefick and Charlie Nolan, members of the starting out club, examines the possibility of installing speed ramps on the road near local primary school. Fourteen-year-old Charlie says he got involved in the project as it was something to do and it gets you thinking. Cian says the most exciting part of the project was the building of the prototypes.

Both Cian and Charlie, along with thirty other members of the club will display their projects this coming Friday 23 February in Gort Mhuire Hall in Ballineen. Doors open at 8pm and the event runs until 10pm. All are welcome to attend, and admission is free. Catering, including tea and coffee, will be provided on the night.

Vikings talk in Clonakilty!

“The Viking Gold and Silver Hoards from County Cork” is the topic of the next Dúchas Clonakilty Heritage lecture on Thursday 22nd at the Parish Centre starting at 8pm.

It will be delivered by John Sheehan, senior lecturer in the Archaeology Department, UCC and a former member of the Heritage Council and the Board of the National Museum of Ireland.

The Vikings were an important presence in Ireland for over two centuries. As well as inflicting great terror they were also responsible for introducing urbanism and new economic systems to the country.

In this talk the focus will be on the economy, looking at the gold and silver hoards that were buried in Co. Cork. It will also explore how these hoards were discovered, what happened to them, and where they are now!
