WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jane Howitt and Daniel McQuade are excited to announce the formation of The Ballydesmond Company, based in Washington, DC. The Ballydesmond Company imports 100% pure Irish peat products for indoor/outdoor fireplaces, barbecues, and fire pits, in addition to other unique, upscale Irish lifestyle goods.
The Ballydesmond Company is currently launching its initial offerings, Siobhán's Irish Fire Logs, Siobhán's Irish Firewood and Siobhán's Fire Go Box, throughout the US and Canada.
Howitt, a graduate of Northwestern, and McQuade, a Georgetown graduate, are both DC residents. They believe Siobhán's Irish Fire products are an attractive alternative for homeowners who have traditionally used wood in their fireplaces; the compact, high-heat output of Siobhán’s peat briquettes make them especially appealing to those living in multi family arrangements like condominiums, coops and apartments. Siobhán's Irish Fire products are attractively packaged for convenient storage in small areas.
"The Ballydesmond Company's unique peat product line is designed to provide consumers a choice. Peat has been used to heat Irish homes for centuries. Its low sulfur content, distinct aroma, long burn-time and high heat output, makes peat an attractive value proposition," says Howitt. McQuade added that Siobhán's Irish Fire Logs and Firewood are great for chimeras and fire pits, and that their Fire Go boxes are the perfect portable heating fuel for campers and hikers.
The Ballydesmond Company is developing distribution agreements with retailers throughout the US, and is selling directly to consumers through their website. More information can be found at irishfirelogs.com.
