About Us

Who we are

O Shea's Hardware has experienced staff who enjoy helping our customers with all their requirements. As you can see on the left, we have specialists in each department who complement each other to ensure that we can help you, whatever your requirement.

What we do

We stock a diverse and complete range of goods in our retail store and builders’ merchants. Our departments include: agricultural, electrical, gardening, lawnmowers, wallpaper, paint, pet, doors, floors, stoves, housewares, plumbing, showers, hand and power tools, and bulk gravel, sand, etc. We also offer local deliveries, free quotations, paint mixing, and key cutting.

Our history

Paul and Rosaleen O’Shea started the business in 1950 in a shop on the Main Street in Charleville, Co. Cork. Their sons Paul and Eddie moved the business to a new purpose built store in 2005 at Bakers Road, Charleville. We owe our survival to our loyal customers and our dedicated staff, many of whom are with us for a long number of years.

The local community

All our staff live locally in North Cork and South Limerick. Some are involved with GAA, golf, and rugby clubs, and the local Brass and Reed Band. We enjoy friendly banter between staff and customers from both counties and neighbouring parishes. We sponsor local clubs and associations to give back to our community.

The Topline group

It would be fair to say that joining the Topline group in the mid 1990’s was one of the best decisions we have made. We joined the successful group, which is Ireland’s largest hardware buying group, to benefit alongside 150 affiliated shops nationwide. It allows us to pass on keener prices and deals to our customers due to bulk purchasing power. We also benefit from their marketing skills and participate in their national sales and promotions, which offer great value to our customers.

Our aim is to continue to improve our service to our customers.
