Our carefully selected new Strong & Sturdy Coal Bunkers Range includes the popular 300kg Coal Bunker. This Coal Bunker, which will never rust or rot, is the one that we would recommend for most families.

Coal Merchants Dublin make Pre-Budget Submission

Coal Merchants Dublin.

 
 Below is a copy of the pre-budget submission made by Coal Merchants, Dublin to
 Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan TD.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Pre-Budget submission by

Crumlin Fuel Depot,

Coal Merchants Dublin.

 
 
Dear Minister Noonan.

I have been a coal merchant in Dublin for more than 30 years now. I have a small family run business which works extremely hard to service the home heating needs of our many customers right across all areas of the south-side of Dublin. During that time I have faced many challenges in business. I have faced into the difficulties that the 80s/90s brought, including the crippling currency crisis at that time. I witnessed first hand the devastation that mass unemployment, mass emigration, and total despair that that period brought to all areas of Dublin, the same devastation and despair that was of course replicated throughout the entire country. As a Dublin coal merchant, at that same time I faced head-on the challenge of the ban on bituminous coal in Dublin and the other main centres of population in Ireland. The difficulties that the ban brought to my customers as a whole, but especially my older customers who depended entirely on their open fire/back-boiler for their home heating needs cannot be overstated. However, over the recent past coal merchants in Dublin have continuously worked to bring the cost of smokeless fuel down to it’s now affordable level.

The Celtic Tiger brought many welcomed changes. Many families found themselves in the financial position to be able to afford to have gas or oil fired Central Heating installed in their homes. Meanwhile, the unquantifiable yet sizable bi-monthly gas bills, or the huge cost of the regular tank fill of oil held no fear for large sections of the population. Unfortunately, as we all now know, that ship has sailed and we are all facing a new reality.

Throughout those 30 years or more, I have witnessed the varied economic changes and financial challenges faced by a small family business such as my own. Indeed, as a founder member and chairperson of Crumlin Village Business Association, I have witnessed at first hand the many challenges faced by small local business’ in general.

Dublin Coal Deliveries

However, the level of despair today among many of my customers is very different. In the 80s/90s I witnessed a kind of acceptance, almost an approval of the difficult situation that we all had to face. But now I see a hopelessness, a futility, and a genuine dread and fear of what the immediate future may hold. Along with my regular, older customers who continue to buy a bag of smokeless coal and a couple of bags of logs each week, I am also now seeing the return of customers who had installed gas or oil fired heating during the Celtic Tiger. These are ordinary people from every section of society who are now struggling to cope with the reduction in their income.  The warm and welcoming glow of the open fire is now very often the easiest and only option for most. As I go about my coal deliveries in Dublin, it is just dreadful for me to see an older person sitting in the freezing cold in their own home in the afternoon, afraid to put on their heating that day in fear and trepidation of the increasing gas bill that they will face in the next couple of months. Unfortunately, this has now become a daily occurrence for many. In these most difficult times of austerity,  the open fire & solid fuel stove are the only means of home heating where “Fuel Poverty” is greatly alleviated by the availability of more easily managed small purchases of fuel. From a bale of briquettes or a small handy-pack of coal from the local store or garage forecourt when necessary, to the large bag of coal delivered weekly by the trusty Dublin Coal Merchant, it is for many the only affordable, manageable method of keeping warm at home during winter. Any increase in taxes now is sure to increase levels of fuel poverty right across the country.

It is with this in mind that I implore you not to impose an additional cost on smokeless coal supplies, or add to the 13.5% VAT rate. Please do not add to the burden on an already struggling householder trying so hard to heat their home this winter.

 

Thanking you in advance,

 

Robert Hudson,

Coal Merchants Dublin see upturn as Winter Bites

Coal Merchants Dublin see upturn as winter bites

Coal deliveries Dublin on the increase as home owners turn to cheapest coal in Dublin since before 2010 Crumlin Fuel Depot, Coal Merchannts Dublin, Smokeless Coal Delivery Dublin. Cheapest coal in Dublin  

With the Irish economy still in serious difficulties, and those slight signs of recovery yet to emerge, many people have been taking a look at all aspects of household expenditure, including trying to better manage those regular bills that land on the door mat every month or two.

An obvious place to start is with home heating costs. Right now in Ireland, Home Heating Oil is dearer than the rest of Europe. Indeed, the huge outlay for a fill of oil now is almost enough to make your head spin. Meanwhile, Natural Gas prices continue in an upward spiral, after another increase in the order of 20% or so. Meanwhile hard pressed householders witness the cheapest coal in Dublin since before 2010

The particularly severe cold spells we have witnessed in recent winters, with most of Ireland covered in a blanket of snow for a number of weeks, has not only brought the country to a near standstill, but has also seen many people face the unexpected shock of huge increases to their bi-monthly natural gas bills, while empty home heating oil tanks needed to be replenished at ever increasing cost. These large outlays, in one fell swoop, are particularly difficult for many home owners to manage in the present economic crisis. As heating systems struggled to maintain a comfortable level of warmth inside our homes while temperatures plummeted outside, along with the greatly increased hours of demand each day, many saw their bills up to double the normal payment, or even more.

Right throughout Ireland, but particularly in the capital, cheap coal in Dublin is making a big comeback as people look to the trusty Open Fire again as a means to better manage their Home Heating Costs.  Coal Merchants Dublin have already reported an upturn in sales Y/Y. After a decade or more of declining  coal deliveries Dublin, this reversal of fortunes is most welcomed by the Coal Merchants/ Smokeless Fuel Suppliers.

Coal Merchants Dublin welcome cheapest coal in Dublin is 3 years

Dublin Coal Merchant, Robert Hudson of Crumlin Fuel Depot said “Last winter we saw the return of many of our customers who had previously changed to gas or oil”. He continues “your Open Fire will not only provide a Warm and Welcoming Focal Point for the whole family on these cold and damp evenings, it can also help you to manage those ever increasing heating bills”. “Even those who continue to occassionally use their gas or oil systems have noticed that enjoying the Warm and Friendly Ambiance of their Cosy Open Fire each evening or over the weekend can hugely reduce the demand on their main supply and minimise those unexpected heating bills that pop up every couple of months”. Robert concluded by saying “There has never been a better time to enjoy the cosy comfort of a Real Coal Fire”.

A big plus for many people in Dublin who are using their open fire is the fact that they can very often arrange a smaller more manageable Smokeless Fuel Delivery directly to their homes. And then their stock of fuel is right there for them to see, fully paid for.  They can easily monitor what they are using each week, no worries about unexpected bills, no nasty surprises. Indeed the improved quality, high heat output, low emissions Smokeless Fuel available today is more than enough to fill your home with a lasting warmth that doesn’t instantly disappear with the click of a timer.

Vital Supplies of Cheap Coal in Dublin City, the post war years

Vital Supplies of Cheap Coal in Dublin City, The Post War Years

The availability of supplies of cheap coal in Dublin was very often a life line for post war Dublin residents

Crumlin Fuel Depot, Coal Merchants Dublin. Coal Delivery Dublin of quality cheap coal in Dublin

Traditional old coal merchants, Dublin Bellman

 For centuries Irish people have relied on supplies of cheap coal in Dublin as their primary source of heating. Indeed, the people have often depended on supplies of cheap coal in Dublin for cooking and lighting in their homes too. Coal Merchants in Dublin have always been a valuable member of the Dublin business community, often more so than other suppliers of goods and services. During the harshest winters of bygone days, a reliable and trustworthy Coal Merchant Dublin with supplies of good quality cheap coal in Dublin could be the difference between life and death to families in the freezing  post war Dublin. Families at that time, while large in number, lived in small poorly insulated draughty homes and relied on the local coal merchant Dublin to deliver a reasonably good quality cheap coal in Dublin directly to their home. Good quality cheap coal in Dublin was of course a concern for families primarily for heat at the time, but even then, the social aspect of an open fire was evident, where the entire family spent long, cold and damp evenings huddled together around a warm cosy fire. Stories and tales of legend were passed from generation to generation around the coal fires of Dublin family homes.  Traditional Irish Music played around the coal fire of an evening was often the only highlight of the weekend.

Coal Delivery Dublin, “The Bellman”

Coal Merchants Dublin were traditionally known as “bell men” because of the bell attached to the harness of their horse and cart. As they delivered cheap coal in Dublin , the bell would jingle to the stride of the horse hauling the cart load of coal across the cobbled streets of the city. The sound of the bell alerted the residents to the arrival of the Dublin Coal Merchants on the streets outside there homes. The residents would then come out from their homes to buy their coal from the Dublin Coal Merchant, often only a couple of days supply each time. To buy even a full bag of Coal at that time would have been an unaffordable extravagance for most Dublin residents. The Dublin Coal Merchant would have weighted out the coal on his coal scales on the back of his cart. Mostly selling cheap coal in Dublin at no more than a stone (6.5 Kgs) of coal or less each time, urually tipped into used cardboard boxes, shopping bags, small home made wooden carts, or even baby’s prams, the Coal Merchants in Dublin would be a daily sight in the tenements and developing housing estates of the day. Traditional Coal Merchants Dublin, such as Crumlin Fuel Depot, evolved from family traditions of being the local bellman of the day, often passed on from grandfather to father to son just like many other small family business’.

Good quality Cheap Coal in Dublin City.

Robert Hudson of Crumlin Fuel Depot, Coal Merchants Dublin said today, “Quality supplies of cheap coal in Dublin city at the time was so important for so many families, for so many reasons. Coal delivery Dublin, while a daily sight on the city streets, really played a vital role at the time, as it has for millenia.”

Coal Merchants Dublin. The leading suppliers of coal since the Middle ages

The collieries that once dominated many parts of Ireland have now gone and the pit heaps have been reclaimed and naturalised into the landscape, but there is no doubting the important influence that coal mining has had upon shaping the modern character of Ireland.

It seems probable that Tipperary is the oldest intensive coal mining district in the country and evidence suggests that the Celtic Peoples burned and excavated coal in the region. But it was not until the 13th and 14th centuries that it became more widespread with demand spurred on by ever expanding towns and an increasing population. Among those to profit from the increased demand were the Barons of Tipperary, but it was the Coal merchants Dublin who stood to gain the most.

This was primarily because Dublin was a seaport and as the demand for coal grew and Ireland’s hard to Quarrie supples, where insufficient, The coal merchants Dublin, dominated the market. In fact they became so powerful they controlled the coal prices in Dublin, but also in the rest of the country.

England became the coal suppliers Dublin main source, especialy the mines of North East England

Coal is mentioned in the records of County Durham as early as the 12th century, when the Boldon Book (1183) mentions a coal miner at Escomb. It states that the coal miner provided coal for the iron-work of the ploughs at nearby Coundon. The book also records that the smiths of Sedgefield and Bishop Wearmouth were making use of local coal. But most of the early coal mines of the region, were along the banks of the Tyne where seams were shallow and easily mined. As early as the mid 1300s, mines were recorded at Cockfield, Coundon, Hett, Lanchester and Ferryhill, along with others further east at Lumley and Rainton. The Lumley mine was owned by the monks of Finchale Priory, near Durham and consisted of a drift mine, with recesses for candles to light the mine.

Is Coal Merchants Dublin Anthracite Mined In Ireland

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

The major anthracite Mines in Ireland were located in Ballingary

Unfortunately anthracite is no longer mined on a commercial basis in Ireland.
Anthracite is a hard, naturally smokeless fuel with a high calorific value and low ash content. The coalfield was positioned in the Slieve Ardagh region and was an extension of the Leinster coalfields. The deposits, which were deeply faulted, comprise of three strata, the lowest averaging nine inches in thickness and the other seams being roughly two feet thick. Due to the inclined coal layer acting as a slippage plane, considerable amounts of the deposits had been crushed and combined with the upper and lower boundary shale. This resulted in a lesser commercially viable content known locally as culm. Due to its high elevation, melting snow in the Slieve Ardagh area intermittently resulted in considerable volumes of flood-water. This regularly threatened to overwhelm the mines normal output of quality anthracite.
