Mr SnowPlough looks for farm partners in nationwide scheme
Dermot Redmond also decided to develop the whole snow clearing or removal business.
He has called the company Mr SnowPlough.
"Last year we had lots of calls during the snow from people and companies wanting to know if we provided a snow clearing service," Dermot explained.
"From this, I saw an opportunity to set up a nationwide snow removal and gritting service," he added.
Dermot has employed two people to establish contacts with individuals and companies all over the country, offering them a snow removal service.
"The feedback has been excellent and already we have a number of very large clients on board, including a supermarket chain, several doctor and dental surgeries, hospitals, hotels and more. Many of these just want to keep their doors open, particularly businesses in these tough times."
Essentially, Mr SnowPlough provides the client base for the Mr SnowPlough operatives.
"The companies that require a snow removal service then pay the Mr SnowPlough operatives directly. We charge our operators an annual fee of €250 plus VAT and in return we provide the clients," he added.
