Our phone line & credit card machine are presently out of order. This due to a tree falling on the cables on 18th Dec. and since then an ongoing fault in the exchange. To date (28th) we still have no main telephone service.

We need your business so, if you are trying to contact us please use the mobile no. 086-8154222 until someone from Eircom has bothered to get out of bed and tried to help us.

We can also be contacted by email: info@antiquedesks.ie or leaving a message on our home phone: 051 426982 which is not affected.

Thank you for understanding this problem
