I am Noel living in the parish of Toomevara in beautiful Tipperary. It’s the home of hurling, the best place in whole World and close to Nenagh and Limerick.
I love sport…GAA, rugby, soccer, golf, darts (yes it is a sport) which is why, in 2013, I started a great little business called Mr Sports Gift. This is growing organically but I found that I am regularly asked for other gifts that don't relate to kicking a ball or wearing short pants, gifts that really say what you want to say to a special person (or even your child's teacher!).
Being the perceptive sort I copped on that there was a need to broaden the offering so I came up with a cunning plan and The Funky Gift Shop was born in 2017.
Mr Sports Gift values having fun and being just a little quirky and this applies even more in The Funky Gift Shop.
We should be able to have a laugh while we go about our daily work and be a little bit weird, if we want, without hurting anybody's feelings.
I want the company to have a unique and memorable personality.
I want our customers to express their personality in the gifts we create for them.
This is my full time job now and what a wonderful job it is to be in a position to make people smile. By supporting The Funky Gift Shop you are supporting a small 100% Irish owned business. You aren't funding a foreign holiday or a second home for me (although lets not rule that out completely in the future!!)
