A big thanks to the happy customer who sent back this little snap – it’s of her young son hiding in the bottom cupboard of his new Captain’s Bed! And where better to hide at bedtime!
Here at Rossmore Furniture Fair we have a great range of childrens furniture and we make to measure, ensuring you can get exactly what you want – even if it does cost a little extra!
We’re open 7 days a week and always happy to answer your queries by phone (047 75122) or in person!
Now reviewing holiday destinations is not an angle I intend to pursue in my blogs however when myself and the missis visited a unique holiday location in Donegal I knew I’d have to write a few words!
Violet Cottage is a beautiful thatched cottage which has been lived in constantly for hundreds of years – everything about it is authentic and magical. And what’s better it has all the mod-cons that a body could ever want as well as rustic and private surroundings – you only have to step outside to get a glimpse of the spectacular local scenery.
Now its hard not to warm when you see the quaint slanting thatch roof of the cottage. But I’llÂ admireÂ you may have to be more of a furniture nerd and heritage lover to appreciate the next photo – it’s taken from inside and shows the dresser and the plate rack on the parlour wall. What I liked about this was the way the dresser is actually built into the wall alcove, with the dresser base (or sideboard part on bottom) extending out beyond the alcove while the top part is only out an inch or two – the clever craftsman used the wide moulding to frame the gap once he had the bookcase part inside – this has the sneaky and tasty effect of hiding any gaps and lifting the appearance hugely.
From the number of coats of paint this item has recieved and from the rustic joints and jointing methods I could see, it’s clear to me that this isn’t someÂ newfangledÂ ”repro” but the reallll thing! Indeed in a nearby abandoned cottage, is the exact same type of dresser (in an advanced state of rotting) built in to an alcove in exactly the same way and style! One cottage is alive and vibrant, and the other, almost identical in terms of these furnishings (as well as interior layout) lies abandoned to the elements. (As I said, perhaps you need to be a furniture/heritage nerd to appreciate this…)
Anyway for those of you looking for the real deal – look no further – book a holiday in Violet Cottage, Ballyshannon, Donegal! Click below for more info!
We manufacture traditional mahogany and cherry wall units – here’s a quick snap from the showroom – it’s shown with here in a 3 door wall unit on a 3 door sideboard base. Adjustable glass shelves, mirrored backs, drop down lights and shaped pediment top. It really is a classic wall unit, with grace and style and really timeless – it must be timeless – we’ve been manufacturing and selling this particular unit for almost 20 years and selling similar styled units for 50!
We often get the query from lovers of mahogany and cherry furniture that they can no longer get furniture from an old manufacturer such asÂ JE Coyle, SF Quinn, Sherry Bros, Sherlock Bros, Columbs, Gola Furniture or Woodland furniture. Well we’re happy to help in any way we can – we can actually make adjustments in size and styles without a huge additional cost and we can offer different colours – for example we can do mahogany in a deep dark colour and a nut brown mahogany.
Here’s the little prince of china cabinets – it’s the vermont showcase and has the same features as the cabinet above.
It’s a nice height to put trinkets and ornaments on top and the drawer at the bottom. Have a browse through the website and come back to us with queries or comments or, visit us 7 days a week in our Irish showroom, in Monaghan – the home of fine furniture.
Our dining collections come with a range of matching pieces and below we’re showing the dining chairs – you can have either panel back or upholstered back – the upholstered back adds a nice extra cushion to your seating. All seat pads and upholstered backs can be done in a huge variety of colours but for a neutral quality colour, the beige is hard to beat.
If you are trying to match quality dining or bedroom ranges (in traditional cherry or mahogany finishes) from manufacturers such as JE Coyle, SF Quinn, Sherry Bros, Sherlock Bros, Columbs, Gola Furniture or Woodland furniture we can try and give you something close in style in colour. We are the only manufacturer still making quality furniture in Monaghan Town so we can do our best to help! Click through into our website or call to our showroom (open 7 days)….
There are few families in Ireland who haven’t experienced the pain of Alzheimers and so we decided to raise a few quid to help the dedicated workers at the Drumkill Day Centre in Threemilehouse Monaghan.
We raised over â‚¬1000 which we are proud to say goes to helping families and support services for this vital cause.
Thanks to all the local Monaghan people who supported the day and who enjoyed the craic with a few of the staff, past and present who made the effort to attend! In the picture above Aoife Duffy, our Sales Manager, presents the cheque! Thanks again to everyone involved.
Rossmore Furniture, Dublin Rd, Monaghan were among a number of businesses to win a place on the IEDR’s OPTIMISE fund, giving them access to â‚¬10,000 worth of specialist internet consultancy to improve their online capabilities. The announcement was made Monday 10th December at a ceremony addressed by the Minister for Communications, Energy & Natural Resources Pat Rabbitte, T.D., who presented this year’s winners with their graduation certificates. The IEDR OPTIMISE Fund was set up to provide recipients with consultation, training and e-commerce development support services to “optimise” their existing online presence.
Rossmore Furniture are a long established Monaghan furniture firm who have restructured their business – in doing so they have moved from dealing with 500 retailers across the UK and Ireland to selling direct through their Monaghan outlet and now online via www.furniturefair.ie. According to Dermot McNally, who recieved the award on behalf of the company, the Optimise funding will be used to progress this transition.
The Minister stressed the importance of SME’s competing online for a share of the market and for jobs and growth. 90% of businesses in Ireland are SME’s and maximising the potential of online selling is recognised as a major challenge for SME’s.

Just a quick post to show you a little unit we made up for a local customer – it’s a traditionally styled corner unit finished in light oak! Nice wha?
It’s not every factory in Ireland can turn out quality custom cabinets in made to measure sizes. Out of all the manufacturers who used to grace the Monaghan area of Irelands furniture heartland, we’re the only ones still plugging away – we’ll it’s what we know best!
John E Coyle, Sherry Bros, Gola (Woodland Furniture), Sherlock Bros, SF Quinn – were all common names in furniture manufacture but sadly the days of Irish manufacturers has come and gone and it’s only the very resilient (or stubborn few) who survive.
So have a browse through our website and see for yourself – better still jump in a car and visit our retail outlet (only an hour and 20 minutes from Dublin Airport) in Monaghan Town – we’re open 7 days – see you soon!
Call them what you will, there’s nothing like a display unit, a wall unit, a showcase cabinet, a glass cabinet or a crystal cabinet to enhance your home display!
On left is a truly one of a kind – a customer presented us with a request for a dainty, painted display cabinet in a traditional style to match the table and chairs already purchased from us.
We gave her a range of options and she chose this cabinet with a flat pediment top (to keep the product cool and contemporary). We were keen to see the final result and true to her promise, she sent us on an image of how the whole thing came together!
The final result is in the picture below! She was quite limited for space in this section of her Meath home and she needed the furniture to blend seamlessly with the interiors! It did that with style! Rossmore by McNally & Finlay are the manufacturers of quality dining and bedroom furniture across a range of styles and colours. We have lots of standard product to choose from and there are also lots of ways we can adjust and adapt existing products to meet your requirements. Why not browse the website or give us a call. By the way if you are wondering whatever happened to the great manufacturers of old, well, we like to think that having survived 50 years of trade that we fall into that category. But unfortunately many of the other big names in cabinet furniture have moved onto different ways of operating, often leaving manufacture behind in the past. The market was dominated at a time by Irish manufacturers from Irelands midlands such asÂ John E Coyle, Sherry Bros, Gola (Woodland Furniture), Sherlock Bros, SF Quinn. Thankfully Rossmore still remain fighting the good fight, for quality furniture, made in Ireland to UK and Irish Standards.
Long before the whole environmental craze kicked in, Rossmore had installed it’s very own wood burning boiler to provide heat throughout the manufacturing facility. The concept was simple enough, yet at the time a leap of faith was required. Here’s why:
At the time oil was used extensively to generate heat in factories – in high quality furniture manufacture a constant supply of warm air is needed to provide the type of airflow that assists in the drying and curing of the polishes and lacquers that are applied to furniture – it’s these polishes and lacquers which give the product it’s sheen and long lasting look.
However the installation of a biomass system was by no means a “no-brainer” – in fact the cost of such an installation in modern terms would exceed â‚¬300,000. And so, management had to ponder whether it was simpler to continue burning oil as payback was by no means guaranteed – however the then Directors pursued a vision of becoming more independent and decided to install the system. The results and benefits outweighed the costs.
The factory, generating a huge amount of wood off chips, was able to provide its own fuel and dispose of same, while at the same time generating heat to keep the factory cosy. And of course, the whole system was EPA monitored and constant improvements were made to reduce nose, smoke and emissions. But I’m told that huge progress has been made in modern filters to reduce emissions and it’s great that the technology hasn’t stood still. No doubt, modern systems have improved wildly in terms of efficiency etc but this was a landmark installation and served as a starting point for many businesses who wanted to see how it could be done!
