Tag Archives: marked fuel trader’s licence

List, list, O, list!

Yes: the list of holders of marked fuel traders’ licences [xls] has been updated several times since I last reported but I see no change that affects Shannon boaters.

No worst, there is none.

Pitched past pitch of grief,
More pangs will, schooled at forepangs, wilder wring.
Comforter, where, where is your comforting?

And no more licensed marked fuel traders [.xls] on the Shannon either.

It’s back!

The unmissable weekly read: the list of holders of marked fuel traders’ licences [xls] has returned! Life just wasn’t the same without it.

The list of Shannonside fuel traders is the same, though, at least as far as I can see.

Life gets tedious …

… don’t it, when there’s no 100-page list of holders of Marked Fuel Traders Licences to plough through. Revenue didn’t update the list last week; I attributed that to the Monday bank holiday. But there was no new list today either.

Given that I probably constitute 100% of the readers of the document, I feel I should Make Representations, In The Strongest Possible Terms.

Forward, forward let us range …

… Let the great world spin for ever down the ringing grooves of change.

Excitable chap, Tennyson. But there are no ringing grooves in the list of licensed traders in marked fuels along the Shannon.

Nonetheless, the excitement of reading 211 pages of traders’ names and addresses, at four to the page, never palls. I have to read them, alas, as the data entry is so inconsistent that searching could not be relied upon (Mullinger, anyone?). It would be nice if someone cleaned up the data.

The entries are arranged in order of county, or more specifically in alphabetical order by entry in the County field. Thus all the traders in Dublin postal districts come at the end. But the list is headed by two traders who have no entries in the county field. One is Tigh Phlunkett of Leitir Moir; the other is Homefuels Direct Ltd of Stockton on Tees, the only non-Irish licence-holder.

There. Wasn’t that interesting?

It is not much matter …

… which we say, but mind, we must all say the same.

Thus, says Bagehot, William Lamb, 2nd Lord Melbourne, and thus, the same, the list of licensed traders in marked fuel along the Shannon.

Horatio was told …

… that there were more things in heaven and earth than were dreamt of in his philosophy.

They did not, however, include any more holders of marked fuel traders’ licences [xls] along the Shannon.

No more Latin, no more French …

… no more licensed traders in marked fuels [xls] along the Shannon.

Funny how few marinas sell diesel nowadays.

It is notoriously known …

… through the universal world that there be nine worthy and the best that ever were, as William Caxton so well put it. To the eight holders of licences to sell marked diesel along the Shannon must now be added Emerald Star in Belturbet on the Erne.

Can wisdom be put in a silver rod?

Or love in a golden bowl?

My mole doesn’t know, but diesel can be put in a boat’s fuel tank at Silver Line in Banagher, the latest addition to the roll of honour: the traders holding licences to sell marked diesel [.xls] along the Shannon.

The eight licensed sellers are (north to south):

  • CarrickCraft, Carrick-on-Shannon
  • Emerald Star, Carrick-on-Shannon
  • Rooskey Craft & Tackle, Rooskey Quay
  • Hanley’s Marina, Ballyleague (opposite Lanesborough)
  • Quigley’s Marina, Killinure, Lough Ree
  • CarrickCraft, Banagher
  • Silver Line, Banagher
  • Emerald Star, Portumna.

The excitement is too much for me. I think I’ll lie down for a bit.
