A group of businessmen with offices in Dundalk who sold hundreds of fake “electricity saving devices” are now being investigated over the sale of slurry gas detectors.

The men, who traded as Electricity Saver Ireland, were convicted of conspiracy to defraud last week.

Gary John McGeown, John Paul McGeown and Peter Doran pleaded guilty to conspiring to defraud consumers and businesses.

Their firm is based in Abbey Street in Armagh but they also have offices at Blackthorn Business Park, off the Coes Road in Dundalk.

According to a report in today’s Belfast Telegraph customers were charged between £200 and £7,500 for devices from Electricity Saver Ireland which Trading Standards said amounted to “little more than pieces of plastic”.

The trio are also behind a “lifesaving” device sold to farmers to detect lethal slurry gases. This is now the subject of a Health and Safety Executive investigation, according to The Belfast Telegraph.

The HSENI confirmed it was “making enquiries” into the firm’s slurry detectors.
