McCarthy’s was founded in Peter’s Street, Tramore by Thomas McCarthy in 1990. Over the following 10 years the business grew and the site soon became too small. In 2000 Thomas found a suitable site at Riverstown, Tramore. He approached other local businessmen who also became interested in relocating. Several sites were sold by the Council and Riverstown Business Park started. Today McCarthy’s is situated in a purpose built facility at Riverstown Business Park and continues to expand to cater for the Home Heating, Building Supply and Gardening needs of our customers. Thomas has vast knowledge of all things Fuel and is always on hand to help when choosing products or looking for some information on different types of Fuel and Stoves.
