There are many facets to the meaning of Spéire.

The ethos behind Spéire is an admiration of the Irish way of doing business.

We believe Ireland is a great place to do business particularly with the benefit of building close relationships with customers and suppliers alike. We believe that relationships are the most important element of conducting business.

Spéire is a multifaceted combination of two Irish words and an Irish phrase. “Spéir” is the Irish word for sky and “Eire” means Ireland in our native tongue. Spéire is also part of the phrase “Bun na Spéire” which has a literal translation of beneath the sky, which would be most commonly known as horizon or skyline.

Spéire believes the limit is beyond the sky. Anything can be achieved when we work hard enough.

We celebrate innovation and in particular, the level of creativity among many businesses nationwide.
