 The Refill Mill

Caz-Cards first began when Caroline, the business owner, was asked to design a memorial card for her grandfather.  There were no cards available to capture his memory, the love he held for his family and life - so she designed his memorial card.  This was loved so much that Caroline setup her own business designing and printing personalised memorial cards.  This has since expanded into personalised greeting cards, mugs, teddy bears etc... 

Today Caz-Cards is a thriving gift shop, balloon and printing business celebrating 15 years trading in Manorhamilton, North Leitrim.   The business has grown through perseverance, investment and innovation with bucket loads of optimism! All this has culminated in her largest purchase to date – a bigger and better premises in Manorhamilton.

Ciara Murphy, took the leap to leave her career as a tax consultant to run ebroadband in October 2021. Ebroadband was established in August 2020 by David Murphy (Ciara’s husband) and Paul Cahill. Ebroadband are a service provider of high-speed, reliable wireless and fibre broadband with local customer service. Based out of Co:Worx digital hub in Edgeworthstown, Co. Longford and servicing customers in all areas nationwide, ebroadband have been committed to delivering high-speed broadband to areas that other broadband providers have left behind.  

They have been heavily involved with the Local Enterprise Office in Longford, having availed of many financial and soft supports and have also represented LEO Longford at various events and awards ceremonies.

Eibhlin is an eco-entrepreneur and sustainability educator with a passion for cultivating community. She is the founder of The Refill Mill - a minimal waste refill shop based in Mullingar with a website that delivers nationwide. Eibhlin founded her business in March 2020 and has since built a hub for sustainability in the Midlands. In 2021 she began running workshops to help educate people on the practicalities of sustainable living, these have proven very successful and she now gives workshops for businesses, education centres and community organisations.
