Ireland’s biggest saddlery is reopening later this month (19 September).

Homestead Saddlery Superstore at Kill, Co Kildare, was closed in October 2011 after devastating floods.

A stream flooded the premises after four months of rain fell in an hour in nearby Dublin.

The 6,500sqft saddlery has been completely refurbished and will be stocking a wide range of equestrian goods and country clothing.

Up to 30 full and part-time jobs will be created over the next two years, many in the expanding internet business being launched for the export market.

“We are delighted to be getting back into business and feel that value and service are more important than ever,” said brand manager, Mags Heffernan.
