    I searched http://www.insolvencyjournal.ie for 'crossan' and got no hits.

    The Crossan Joinery website is still there...

    The website for Crossan Shopfronts claims that Crossan Joinery is very much still in business...

    Crossans Joinery was founded in 1972 and is an Irish based family business. We are located outside Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan and at 47Phibsborough Road, Dublin. At present we have 30 staff including clerical, carpenters, joiners, builders, glaziers and painters.

    The name on the invoice is 'Crossans Joinery Dublin Limited' and searching that on cro.ie brings up the following:

    Status:
    Receive/Liquidator
    Effective date: 22/02/2011

    Found it, the 's' was the problem. A receiver was appointed in May 2011. It's possible that the business is still being run as a going concern pending the sale of the business but effectively debts incurred before the receiver was appointed won't be paid.

    The main problem seems to be that it's a family run business, as per the name(s) and even though the shop is still operating they will not accept any responsibility for sub-standard work done. After several promises to return calls and come out and see what the issue was....we heard nothing.

    Apparently there are some other disgruntled customers of Crossans out there too.

    According to the last accounts to December 2008 shown on the CashIQ.net website, the company had net liabilities of over one million Euro.

    They've obviously set up another company since then i.e. "Crossans & Sons Joinery Ltd", and on the Aug 2011 accounts they've got net assets of €32K.

    Threaten legal action. Was the cost more or less than €2000 ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6 spartafc


    Cost was more. According to the law I would be taking legal action against a company that has gone into liquidation, which would not get anywhere in court.

    The windows were installed in aug/sept 2009, first issue with water getting in was in dec 2009. ever since then it has been very hard to actually get them out to fix the problem and any calls I have made have been met with a very defensive attitude, when all I want is them to try and come up with a solution to my problem. They were paid in full but are not interested in sorting this out.

    Has anyone else heard of this company?

    I was about to get this company to do a renovation job so this posting has been very helpful

    I wish I saw this thread before getting Crossan to do windows and doors. Still cowboys in 2021.
