    Hi there from West Cork; currently have Freelander TD4 but changing to Series very soon. Always had landies - SIIA; 90's; TD5; changed to Freelander but miss the character of the old bone shakers; especially on West Cork roads.

    Hello from truly stunning West Cork - there's a guy at Caheragh - David - who specialises in Defender's. Don Donovan recommended him to me as he is now focusing on newer models. I have a 94 300tdi 110 - needs work on the clutch. Chatted on the phone and he is 'sound'; will let you know how expensive in a couple of weeks as having it done sometime after Easter week as he has grand-kids over next week. Cyril at Beara is now semi-retired and focusing on vintage cars and landies. Not familiar with Series 1 but he has two in his yard; an old RAF and trad green - was amazed to see the trad green had 6 gear-sticks and a cut out section under the pedals??????

    That now links to a generic page, the gentleman you mentioned is now on a different website in case someone is looking in the feature, used him a couple of times in the past few years. https://www.unitedlocksmiths.ie/cork-car-locksmith/
