New Irish Web Site.- Sad News!

It is with great sadness that I have to report the demise of Denis Foley's new Irish Peterson site.
Here is a note from Denis.
" has now closed for business. I would just like to thank all my customers over the last few months and everyone who helped in promoting the site. I decided to close when Peterson contacted me to say they had got some complaints from other online pipe dealers that my prices were too low and that the name was confusing people into thinking I was the actual peterson pipes in dublin. I don't blame Peterson for wanting me to change this as they have to protect their large customers first and also protect the brand. However, changing the name now would mean becoming totally invisible again, wiping out the last couple of months work. Also upping my prices would mean getting rid of any advantage I had in the first place. Peterson have been very fair and supportive of me and I have no problems with how they treated me. Thanks again. Denis"

  2. Sad News they were indeed! Denis was very pleasant to work with and I wish him all the best in his future endeavours!


  3. Denis will be missed! Does anyone have his contact info? I would like to exchange Peterson tobacco pipes with him.
