Who we are
Our business name is Memorial Cards Ireland and we are based in Northern Ireland. We are an e-commerce company (online) and do not have a physical location where customers can visit us. All orders will be delivered to your door. This keeps our overheads lower and therefore we are able to keep our prices very competitive for our customers.
