Vacancy at Lisnavagh Estate

Lisnavagh Estate (not just the Timber Project) is pleased to be able to offer a new and interesting career opportunity to a suitable person as an Assistant Manager. The position is available from April 2006.

For further details of the position, please e-mail or telephone William Bunbury on +353 (0)59 9161285.



The Stocklists on the web site are now even more useful! In addition to the "normal" stock list of boards available, we now have a seperate list showing kiln dried boards only, and another list showing items other than boards (such as beams, burrs, etc.).

The stocklists are updated every few days or after any significant sales.

The lists are regularly updated and can be found at:

Currently in stock

We have over 2,000 cu ft of sawn, air-dried and kiln dried hardwood timber in stock at the moment.

Our new kiln is flat out and trying to keep pace with demand - we are planning to put in a second, bigger kiln in the coming months!

Finished wood

We have seen a very decent upturn in this business - notably in the production of kitchen worktops, bookshelves and dimensioned timber for DIY enthusiasts.

Repeat business for custom made worktops, shelving, mantelpieces and other finished items is very encouraging.

The waiting list is still about 28 days, depending on timber availability.


As well as our own supply of (mainly windblown) timber from Lisnavagh, we are continuing to look at supplies from outside sources - particularly the more unusual timbers and species that may not be commonly found in our own woods.


Our sales figures are still going up and up at a rapid pace.

Our database has over 650 people and businesses listed now - all of whom have expressed serious interest in what we have and most of whom have bought timber from us.

Our customers travel here from all over the country. The Lisnavagh Timber Project is continuing to grow at a fast rate with increasing numbers of customers seeking an increasing range of finished and unfinished timber products.

We are growing with this growth in demand.

Web Site is getting a lot of hits. Our web site is still the most usual way for our customers to discover us - with "Word of mouth" still hot on it's tail!

Please make use of the Forum! You do not need to Register to see the discussion topics, or even to leave a message. So have a look, and leave a message! Click here to visit the Forum.

Need a workshop?

We have workshop space available here at Lisnavagh. The workshops would be ideal for anybody working with hardwood timber, as there is a very plentiful supply of timber on the doorstep!

Please contact William Bunbury on 059 9161285, or e-mail if you would like to learn more about these possibilities.


Thank you for reading this Newsletter and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
