Environment; Living comfortably; Being warm; Knowing what’s enough;
My philosophy? treating others the way I would like to be treated
When your face wants to smile – Let It
When it doesn’t – MAKE it

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways – Chardonnay in one hand – chocolate in the other – body thoroughly used up, totally worn out ..

I’m a director of Smartheat  with my husband Gilbert.
Our mission is to “increase comfort and reduce heating bills”

the way to a warmer home

We provide sustainable heating solutions and offer professional and practical advice on the reduction of energy consumption and associated costs in the home. Our solutions focus on a combination of energy efficiency measures and the installation of renewable and sustainable energy products.



Smartheat have exclusive import rights for the 32 counties for The Tonwerk Heat Storage Stove, a totally unique product suitable for passive and low energy homes, which we launched at Plan Expo 2008, and won the Best Interior Design Product of the Show Award.


Smartheat also won this prestigious PLAN EXPO award in 2009.

Located in Longford, Smartheat are ideally placed to provide products and services throughout Ireland.

Our clients include The Organic Centre, The Benwiskin Centre, Dublin Institute of Technology, and numerous private projects, both North and South of the border.

As well as supplying quality wood burning appliances, our passion is to have good quality wood fuel available throughout the island of Ireland. To this end we have worked and indeed still work on a voluntary basis to produce and implement the National Workshop Agreement NWA4: 2009

Wood Fuel Quality Assurance (WFQA) scheme for Ireland


The Wood Fuel Quality Assurance Scheme applies to Wood Logs, Wood Briquettes, Wood Pellets and Wood Chip. Wood fuel products with the WFQA label assures the consumer that the wood fuel is:

>Carbon Neutral
>Sourced from Sustainably Managed Forests
>Compliant with relevant Irish and EU standards
>Independently tested and certified in Ireland

The Wood Fuel Quality Assurance Scheme is based on a National Workshop Agreement (NWA), developed by a representative group of wood fuel industry members, in collaboration with Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM); Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI); National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI); Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT); and Irish Bioenergy Association (IrBEA).

    Great blog Pat. I have signed up and maybe just in time as the heat has definitely turned down a notch. I hope you are well! I was thinking about you the last day as I was watching an old episode of SVU! ;0
