The following are a group of images sent in by William Muldowney of a 1958-1959 Winter Season Retail Price list for Machinery and Implements manufactured by  Philip Pierce & Co., Ltd. of Wexford, Ireland.  Business was established in 1839

I purchased a 'Pierce of Wexford' catalogue in an old second hand book shop back in 1984 and it had Cowley names written on the first blank page. Not sure if they are from Carlow, Laois or Athy. They are possibly the Cowley's from Ballickmoyler Road
