Covid-19 & MacEoin General Merchants Ltd Sales.

Dear Customers & Friends

We have had many calls regarding MacEoin General Merchants Ltd opening hours & Trading etc & The Covid 19 Virus.

Online Business & Tele Sales will continue as normal for as long as Fastway & DPD are doing deliveries.

If possible please order on line or by phone rather than calling and collecting goods.

If you are collecting goods please order in advance so we can have your order ready for collection.

Our priority is to protect our Staff and Customers and therefore we think that this action is necessary now and it is in line with recent developments and advice.

Hand Sanitiser and hand washing facilities are available at our warehouse and offices in Dingle.

We will update you as we get any new information.

Thanks for your Cooperation in this difficult period at our busiest time of year.

Any questions please call us on 0669150615

Mike, Rosie, Maura, Natalie & Michelle.

Stock levels are currently Medium - High on most products with no major delays expected on anything.

Stock updates:

We do have some delay on certain products from China but goods have now been shipped & we expect delivery within next 2 - 3 weeks.

Brinsea Incubator stocks are very good with no disruption in supply presently.

Borotto & River Systems Incubators which come from Italy are getting low but we are hoping deliveries will come in before we run out totally.

Where possible order well in advance of your needs.

Coronavirus - COVID-19 Customer Update.

We have had several enquiries from our trade customers and end users about product availability and production in general.

Production is continuing on cages, and we are endeavouring to ship all orders as rapidly as possible after receipt.

On most items we have excellent stocks and do not see any shortages on Incubators, Poultry Equipment, Coal, Gas & Camping Supplies.

Please note that there is unprecedented demand for travel health products, discinfectants & cleaning products and this is having an impact on some delivery times.

We are trying to be as fair as we possibly can be in the allocation of stock to customers' orders, please bear with us as the situation changes every day.

If you need to contact us, please use the usual phone numbers and e mail addresses unless we advise otherwise.

While the warehouse is closed to the public we are working as normal behind closed doors and still shipping out web & mail orders for next day delivery if ordered before 11.00 am.

Deliveries will continue as long as DPD & Fastway are delivering. Pallet deliveries are also shipping out as normal but some areas are experiencing delays of 48 hours.

Local coal & gas deliveries throughout West Kerry are running as normal.

Campingaz trade deliveries done by our own vans nationwide are currently suspended. Most customers have good stock but contact us for your closest distributor.

Thank you for your patience in this difficult time.

Please stay safe and pay attention to the HSE guidelines.


Mike & all at MacEoin General Merchants.

Perfect, will do!!

Deliveries are taking longer than expected in some areas due to DPD & Fastway Couriers being busier than normal. Please try and order in advance of your needs.
We are still shipping out same day in most cases but have back logs on some products coming from Spain & Italy.
We expect all back orders will be cleared next week.
Thank you for your orders and your patience in these difficult times.
Stay Safe.
