Ian Murphy, Bunkering Manager

Growing up in the Kilmore Quay area, I developed a love of boats and trawlers from a very young age. Upon joining Glen Fuels, I approached Alan Keyes with the idea of establishing a marine fuels department - they say that if you do something you love, you'll never work a day in your life.

Combining my knowledge and passion with the Glen Fuels fleet, logistical expertise and unrivalled customer service levels; Glen Fuels is now the leading distributor of fuel to the marine sector throughout Wexford. As Glen Fuels opened new depots in key locations, we began working with more fishermen and skippers in Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Wicklow and Dublin.

Drawing on the established and trusted relationships between Glen Fuels and other independent drivers/depots, Bunkering by Glen Fuels organises delivery of marine fuel oils to 33 river and sea ports throughout the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Europe.

You've come here to see if we can solve a problem. Bunkering by Glen Fuels has the solution:

Coffee Cup Crime and Consciousness

Coffee Cup Crime and Consciousness

UNESCO Young Environmentalists

Congratulations to Keelan, Kaylee, Heather and Libby who were "Highly Commendable" for their Cup Alert initiative at the ECO-UNESCO Young Environmentalist Awards 2019.

The girls are 5th and 6th class students at St Colmans's National School, Ballindaggin and were one of three groups from the school to reach the finals.

Inspired by Glen Fuels

We're thrilled that the Glen Fuels 100% recyclable coffee mug inspired four young ladies to tackle coffee cup crime and consciousness with an initiative called Cup Alert.

"Dad was coming home with the reusable cup from Glen Fuels and we were seeing coffee cups that had been thrown into ditches along the roadside", said Keelan Hipwell who wants to see a ban on non-recyclable coffee cups.

Irish Figures on Non Compostable Cups

The girls visited six coffee retail outlets armed with Cup Alert posters (pictured) to be displayed publicly for four weeks, questionnaires for the managers and a comments box for the customers.

An article in The Journal offered the facts and figures:

  • 200 million coffee cups are thrown in Irish bins each year which equals
    • 528,000 a day
    • 22,000 an hour
    • 366 a minute
    • 6 per second
  • 1 in 400 disposable coffee cups are recycled

A video on the Independent.co.uk explains that disposable coffee cups are not recyclable because:

  1. They're contaminated with fluid (tea, coffee, milk) which recycling centres don't accept;
  2. To make the paper waterproof a film of non recyclable plastic polyethylene is bonded to the paper.

We Love Irish Seaside Spuds

Irish spuds, grown close to the sea, are delicious.


We Love Spuds

Ian at our Rosslare depot sent us these stunning pictures of Irish company Kilmore Potatoes sewing potatoes on land in Tullow, Co. Carlow.

The potato is a great partner to meat, fish, veg, herbs and pulses AND it helps cure hangovers due to its potassium content; the vitamin c in the skins will give your skin a glow; and it's got vitamin B6 to put you in good mood and ensure your brain is firing off all cylinders. Irish spuds are delicious with a knob of butter or a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of salt.

Fun Fact:

"Spud" is the tool used to dig holes before planting.

Trust Your Gut

Trust Your Gut

If it looks dangerous. If it sounds dangerous. If it feels dangerous. It is dangerous.


Trust Your Gut

Every single one of us has an in-built sense of danger. If we open our eyes, we can spot danger. If we listen, we can hear danger. If we tap into how our body responds in a certain situation, we can sense danger - shivering, hairs standing on end, a feeling of unease in the gut.

Too often we discount what we hear, see and feel as being "not real". This often lands us in situations where we find ourselves saying, "My gut told me not to. Why did I make such a bad decision?"

Trust yourself.

Trust your innate intuition. If it looks dangerous. If it sounds dangerous. If it feels dangerous. It is dangerous.

The Saltee Islands

The Saltee Islands

The Saltees are very dear to our hearts and provide a sanctuary for birds.


Haven for Birds and Birdwatchers

The Saltee Islands in St. George's Channel consist of the Great and Little Saltee. They sit 5 kilometers off the coast of Kilmore Quay, Co.Wexford.

The Saltees are a haven for sea birds, nurturing an impressive array of birds, from Gannets and Gulls to Puffins and Manx Shearwaters. They also lie on an important migratory route and a popular stopping-off place for spring and autumn migrants. The Great Saltee also has a breeding population of Grey Seals, one of the very few in eastern Ireland. Up to 120 animals are present in autumn and up to 20 pups are produced annually.

These privately owned Islands are one of the world's major bird sanctuaries.

Part of Ancient Europe

Between 600 and 2000 million years old, Saltees are among the ancient islands of Europe, based on Pre-Cambrian bedrock. Primitive Stone Age man first settled there and carved out an existence before history was recorded. People lived on the islands as long ago as 3,500 to 2,000 B.C. There is a recently identified promontory fort, the remains of an ancient grave, an Ogham stone (now in a local museum) and traces of what appear to be ring forts.

A True Treasure Island

Archaeological evidence show that Neolithic man settled on the islands, and traces of religious settlements still exist. Early Christian hermits, Vikings, Normans and medieval monks also inhabited the islands. Small communities of farmers and fishermen made a humble living there. 

The Saltees were in the path of one of the world's most important sea trading routes - between Britain and the American continent. They were used as a base for pirates, wreckers and smugglers. Pirates from Spain, France, North Africa and America plundered the busy merchant ships within sight of the islands. The waters around the islands became known as " the graveyard of a thousand ships" and the islands their tombstones, so dangerous was the area to shipping. The gains of the wreckers and smugglers could very well be hidden in the many caves which have mysterious and romantic names - Lady Walker's Cave, Happy Hole, Otter's Cave and Hell Hole, enough for any Treasure Island.

In 1798 two leaders of the Rebellion used one of the island's cave as a hiding place for two leaders. John Henry Colclough and Bagenal Harvey hid and plotted their escape to France. Legend has it that soldiers saw soapy water coming out of the cave while the men were washing. This led to their arrest and hanging on Wexford town bridge on 28 June 1798.

The big island was extensively farmed in the nineteenth century. Farming ceased in 1900 until 1939, when early potatoes and barley were important crops. Other crops included oats, beans, onions, etc. Farming ended in 1943.

Mystery of the Name

It is unknown if the islands were always called the Saltees. As for the origin of the current name there are two possible theories, Norse or of Old or Middle English derivation. However the name suggests a Norse origin (Salt ey - salt island) derived from the phenomenon of the salty spray which sweeps across the islands at times of high winds and waves, especially during the winter.

Privately Owned, Everyone Welcome

In December 1943 the Saltees were purchased privately by the late Prince Michael the First. Since his death in January 1998 the islands are now owned by his five sons Michael, John,  Manfred, Paul, Richard and daughter Anne. He is buried in the family vault in Bannow Bay, Co.Wexford. His title was passed on to his eldest son Michael.

Mid-Summer Spectacle

One of the most spectacular sights on the Great Saltee in mid-Summer are the sea birds colonies on the cliffs to the north-east of the Gannet headland. Vast numbers of Guillemots and Razorbills pack the ledges and create a frightful incessant din which only at night abates a little. The Fulmars too play their part in this splendour. Towards dusk the sight of the Puffins congregating in small groups near their nestling sites presents a marvellous sight.

Permission for day visits to the Great Saltee, by courtesy of the Neale family, is not needed. Permission to visit the Little Saltee can not be granted due to the hazardous landing conditions. However the family request that all visitors to respect these islands.

A popular family holiday destination, Kilmore Quay has long been associated with Irish fisheries and angling. In addition to the old harbour, a state-of-the-art 55-berth marina with its safe berthage and on-shore facilities, have ensured Kilmore Quay remains busy and popular with modern leisure and commercial mariners - species of fish available include bass, cod, shark, tope, ling, mackerel, bream, pollock, skate and whiting.

Known as the 'graveyard of a thousand ships' the area from Hook Head to Carnsore offers is an interesting diving location. Many environmental features in Kilmore Quay are of historical and natural significance - Ballyteigue Castle, Grange Cemetery, the Lifeboat Station, Ballyhealy Castle, St Patrick's Bridge, Ballyteigue Burrow for its flora and fauna, and Ireland's most famous bird sanctuary, the Saltee Islands. The area also has many unspoilt beaches, offering miles of the finest sand dunes in the south-east. (Source: Kehoes Pub)

If you are no longer a Glen Fuels customer, you have the "right to be forgotten". You can contact us and request that all your information be erased without undue delay. This does not apply to data retained for compliance with a legal obligation; for example, where a statutory or regulatory body requests information in accordance with their legal powers.

You may also contact us with a request to transfer your personal information to a third party of your choosing; for example, another oil company. In this instance we will provide you with your personal information which we hold for you to pass to the third party.
